Wash Up Time All Around

Last week, a heavy shower covered the whole northern part of Colorado. Some cities had about 21 inches of rain. A flood started after. The rain was so strong it ruined many roads, neighborhoods, and many other places.More than 19,000 homes were damaged by the flood. Many people were forced to evacuate their homes for their own safety.

Many people, over hundreds, went missing during the flood and only 8 people died, mostly by getting trapped in cars during the flood. Many people were separated from their families and many people fleed the state or moved to the southern part of Colorado.

Tuesday of the third week in September, the rain finally stopped. Many officials were called to  help rebuild the homes and roads. They estimated the cost of the damage the rain made. The cost of all this would be more than 2 billion. The governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, swears the state will be fixed.
Hickenlooper says, "We're going to come back and rebuild better than it was before."
