Remembering the 2013 Boulder flood
Ten years ago, when rain clouds rolled over the Flatirons, heavy rains that hit the Boulder and Colorado Front Range communities brought upon floods that caused damage and loss of life. An upper-level cut-off low-pressure system remained for five days, bringing record-breaking monsoon moisture and rainfall between 6 to 18 inches in many areas. The result was catastrophic, with thousands of homes destroyed, lives lost, people displaced, infrastructure damaged, and a staggering $3 billions in repair costs. Ten years later, we look back on this event's profound impact today.
