Take A Look: Flooding Across Colorado Caught On Vine

Blake Redson

Thursday brought flooding that while not unprecedented, was highly widespread across the Front Range. What started with some playful behavior in Boulder, quickly escalated to evacuations, property loss and by the end of Thursday three lives lost.

Thursday's flood events are documented with our live blog, where we also gathered some incredible pictures from the day. Images include major roads washed away, bridges lost, and an absolutely massive amount of water swamping normally dry tracts of land.

While those pictures were dramatic, they sometimes fail to convey the full force that the flood waters have. The sound and the speed at which the water moves have to be seen and heard to be believed, so we gathered some of the Vines across the Front Range here.

Northern Colorado

I’m not a Colorado native (did you know that "I'm from Missouri" means "I'm skeptical of the matter and not easily convinced?") but I have lived here for most of my life and couldn't imagine leaving. After graduating from Colorado State University, I did what everyone wants to do; I moved to the mountains and skied, hiked, and hid from responsibility! Our listeners in the mountains may know me from my time in Steamboat Springs and Vail or as the voice of the Battle Mountain Huskies Hockey team in Vail.
