A National Guard official says airlifts and truck convoys have ferried more than 1,750 stranded residents and their pets from the floodwaters.
    
Lt. James Goff said Saturday the rescue areas have mainly rescued people from Boulder and Larimer counties.
    
He says the airlifts will resume Sunday with helicopter crews expanding their searches east to include Longmont, Fort Collins and Weld County.
    
Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle says authorities are making progress in reaching areas previously inaccessible. Hundreds of people in the flooded areas are still unaccounted for.
