Colorado Flood Washes Out Highway 34 [PICTURES]

Sheriff Justin Smith, Facebook

The devastation being brought on by this floodwater is almost incomprehensible, especially near the Big Thompson River. Highway 34 has been wash out cutting off a major route to Estes Park. In fact the only way to communicate with Estes Park presently is via radio; Century Link is urgently trying to repair the phone lines. Here is a look at pictures we are seeing from what is left of Highway 34.

To put an estimate on just how much damage has been done, the Loveland Reporter-Herald just tweeted this, “Larimer County Sheriff Smith: 17 miles of U.S. 34 needs to be rebuilt in Big Thompson Canyon. #larimerflood.

I shudder to think how long it is going to take to get all these mountain roads repaired, or how many more problems we’ll find once the water finally recedes.

The not-so-good news, the forecast for the area is calling for 20-60% chances of rain everyday through Monday.

Everyone affected by these floods is in our thoughts.
