Last month, the state of Colorado was the victim of devastating floods, estimated to have caused $1 billion in damages. And according to a FEMA spokesman, only about 1 percent of the state’s residences have flood coverage.
The Colorado flooding resulted from a stalled cold front that dumped up to 17 inches of rain in some areas. Many would not expect flooding in this location, but the tragedy leaves an important lesson in its wake: flooding can happen anywhere, at any time.
