The mid-September 2013 Flood in northern Colorado devastated many communities. The Board of Larimer County Commissioners has released a 7-minute video ‘Larimer County – Life After the Flood’ detailing the flood damage and the recovery efforts made by a host of entities in Larimer County.
 
Mountain roads were hit especially hard in the flood and it has taken until now to create access with temporary roads for residents. Commissioner Chair Steve Johnson spear-headed the project, “Larimer County is committed to responding immediately to natural disasters to help citizens. I felt the video was the best way to show citizens how we are working to restore their lives to as close to normal as possible. The video also serves to show people from all over the county the scope of this disaster. Since many people couldn’t get into impacted areas for some time it was hard to really understand the scope. ”
 
The video is available on the County’s YouTube site at:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NjqdgdszpXM&feature=c4-overview&list=UUTZ-neESjN8BeV_MKQEc5Uw
