Boulder Flooding Disaster
Devastation in Colorado
The effects of recent torrential rains in Colorado have been devastating. Flash floods tore up roads and lines of communication, killed many people, destroyed thousands of houses, displaced livestock, left thousands without electricity and caused shortages of food, gas and other supplies.
Hundreds of people are still reported missing. The storm — which many are now calling “Biblical” and a “thousand-year event” — resulted in what National Guard officials are calling the largest air rescue operation in the United States since the heavy flooding that followed Hurricane Katrina.
To our exceptional colleagues, patients, families and friends impacted by the catastrophic events caused by the flooding in a 15-county area of Colorado, please accept our heartfelt prayers. Know that you are in our thoughts.
