During a 500 year event, continuous and heavy mid-September rains in 2013 caused rivers and creeks to completely topple trees and bury vehicles. The raging waters washed away highways, bridges and homes in Colorado Front Range communites. The COLORADO floods link above takes you to a collection of video and photos taken during and after the event.
After photographing such extreme weather events the past few years, from flooding to fires and now with the record high CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere, are such wild storms going to be a continuing trend?
Below, are time lapse images of the Bear Creek Lake Park reservior after the heavy rains disappeared. The reservoir was ten times its original size after Bear Creek was done raging.
