PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER/BOULDER CO

Todays topic during this Colorado Flood and Wildfire Awareness Week
is flash floods.

Flash floods frequently result from heavy rainfall rates, and
infrequently result 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, and the accompanying debris. The
tremendous force can easily damage or destroy roadways, bridges, and
buildings.
