Colorado Flooding-Day 5: Weld County Badly Hit-Photos

It is still raining in the eastern Colorado for the fifth day on Saturday, causing more damages to the flooded area as rivers overflow their banks.

Houses, roads, farms and bridges are damaged and destroyed by the flood waters and landslides.

One of the hardest hit areas are in Weld County where the swollen St. Vrain, Big Thompson and Cache La Poudre rivers empty into the South Platte River.

Sean Conway, a commissioner of rural Weld County, said that, “This is a five hundred to a hundred years flood.”

The National Weather Service said that some areas have seen more than 15 inches of rain in a span of three days, which is above average rainfall totals for an entire year.

National Guard troops and local emergency crews team up on search and rescue missions.

The seasonal monsoon rains started on Monday and by Wednesday night, flood waters flowed down from the mountain canyons into the foothills, particularly Boulder.

Ashlee Herring, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Office of Emergency Management said, “All the roads on the western side of the county are lost – they’re gone.”

Further downstream in Morgan County, the farming communities of Weldona, Goodrich, Muir Springs and Orchard were under evacuation orders.
