I haven’t seen much attention being paid to the floods in my state of Colorado.  We as a state are facing a significant recovery effort. The disruption to lives is unbelievable; how kids are going to get to their rural schools with all the road damage is beyond my understanding.
Facts:
Six people dead, 580 people missing
17 Colorado counties impacted
19,000 homes damaged (most will not be covered by flood insurance… we just don’t expect this kind of flooding out here).
30 state highway bridges destroyed; 20 with severe damage
400 lane-miles of state highway destroyed or impassible
Three US Highways have not been inspected; damage expected to be significant.
How You Can Help:
Red CrossTo help people affected by disasters like these floods, people can donate by visiting redcross.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS or texting the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Contributions may also be made by visiting ColoradoRedCross.org.
Help Colorado NowHelp Colorado Now Website is a partnership between the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) and Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (COVOAD). This initiative brings together government agencies and nonprofit organizations so they may better assist communities affected by disasters.
Foothills United WayFoothills United Way has established the ‘Foothills Flood Relief Fund’ to be able to respond to the effects of these storms. Organizers expect to use this fund for immediate relief as well as longer-term recovery in Boulder and Broomfield Counties. The Fund is accessible online at unitedwayfoothills.org/floodrelief
Since so many animals – both pets and farm animals – are in need of temporary homes, donations to local humane societies would be helpful.
