Default The Unbelievable Power of Water--Prayers Needed

Some incredible footage of the floods hitting the state of Colorado in the US over the past several days:

I live less than a mile from one of the rivers that is flooding. Thank goodness, our home was not flooded. I work about a mile from the town of Evans where 1,000's are homeless and evacuated. They are calling this the 500 year flood. The impact on our state has been tremendous!

We certainly covet your thoughts and prayers.

Hi Kendall. Glad to know you are safe and our thoughts will be with everyone affected there at this time.

Brings back memories of what happened here a couple of years ago and how helpless we all felt as the events unfolded. Unfortunately we often end up as mere spectators when nature decides to unleash her fury. I guess at least whatever relief is organized there will actually be delivered instead of being robbed by the local politicians as happened here.

I'm glad to see you're alright Kendall. I have family and friends in Colorado, thankfully they are all ok.
