PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PUEBLO CO
350 PM MDT WEDNESDAY MARCH 15 2017

Today`s topic during this Colorado Flood Safety and Wildfire
Awareness Week is flash floods.

Flash floods frequently result from high rainfall rates, and
infrequently from dam failures, levee failures, or sudden breaks in
river ice jams.  Flash floods can be very destructive, due to the
force of the moving water, which can easily damage or destroy
roadways, bridges, and buildings.

For more detailed information about flash floods, go to this webpage:

and, in the News Headlines, click on the awareness week story, then
