Four dead in Colorado flooding as rescues continue
Four people were dead and thousands were being evacuated on Friday as flood waters raged through parts of Colorado and the National Guard used military vehicles in a small town to rescue up to 2,000 residents.
Taking advantage of a break in record rains that have caused Colorado's worst flooding in over three decades, Guard members went door to door in the remote town of Lyons to ferry residents to safety.
The flooding, which toppled buildings and forced thousands from their homes, was triggered by unusually intense late-summer storms that drenched Colorado's biggest urban centers, from Fort Collins near the Wyoming border through Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs to the south....
I might add the crews would help out with any disaster that hit Katrina was one and there would be volunteers from each coop to go..my husband went to several areas..a tornado that hit in Nashville, Ar.was another..but like you said in your post " The Role of God in Natural Disasters"..never thought of it in that way..thanks for the reminder of God's loving Hand even in the worst of disaster and how it can bring out the good as people respond in love..kudos to your State of Nebraska for giving their prayers feet!
I know when my husband worked for the power company and ice storms hit so bad they would go to the areas and work for a week getting electricity back on and when we got a real bad ice storm then crews from all over Arkansas would come help out. He worked for Southwest Arkansas Rural Electric Coop..seems like rural areas got hit hard because of trees pulling lines down heavy with ice.
Nebraskans not only pray, but also lend a helping hand, Nebraska Red Cross helps CO flood victims It seems to me members of the various rescue teams of the various fire departments in S.E. Nebraska also headed out to help.
