This was something that hit Disaster stages days ago. Colorado got hit with a weather system of massive rainfall, combined with previous years of drought (killing off trees to adsorb the water, loosening ground that turned into mud) turning northern parts of the state into a massive and deadly flood zone. Aging and un-repaired dams broke and added to the chaos.
The news channels seem to be ignoring it. CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC don't have it anywhere near their main stories slot. Fox Not-News is focusing on the GOP plan to defund Obamacare.
It doesn't help that there's been a major shooting again, leaving victims in its wake that we need to remember. Nor that Syria and Iran are dominating the international focus. It's really not helping that the government is facing another shutdown vote by the House GOP.
But in the meantime Colorado is getting hit with a major crisis. Please try to pay attention.
Also, if anyone can help a Coloradan out...
