Colorado’s Wild Weather Causes Widespread Flooding

Record rain and snowfalls all across southern Colorado have produced massive flooding and wide-spread damage this month. On May 9th, three weather records were broken in Saguache County with a snowfall of nearly 16 inches, not only breaking the record snowfall for the date but also breaking the all-time record for the entire month of May…so far!

Torrential downpours engulfed burn scars from Colorado wildfires and swelled creeks and rivers to near bursting. At one point in this massive monsoon, the Colorado River flowed at nearly 10,000 feet per second, matching the current flow in the Grand Canyon.* Thankfully, it never overflowed its banks.

We live in a beautiful and awe-inspiring state, but she’s not to be taken lightly, and she shows us her wild side through tempestuous and often dangerous weather. The wild wet forecast seems to be settling just a bit, though rains continue to soak already saturated soil, threatening even more homes and businesses with flood and water damage. Residents who have already experienced the devastation of flooding are digging through the muck and the mire to recover soggy belongings and save what they can.
