Statistics show 25 percent of businesses that close because of disaster never reopen. Small businesses are especially at risk because few have the resources to assess their risks and develop recovery plans for the future. As part of its mission to help small businesses to start, grow, and succeed, the U.S. Small Business Administration can help when it comes to disaster preparedness and recovery.
By Thomas Ferraro WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A bipartisan bill to protect millions of Americans from potentially unaffordable increases in the cost of federal flood insurance won final U.S. congressional approval ...
I think everyone knows that the Town of Lyons and our surrounding community was changed forever in the flood of September 12th, 2013. Those few days brought immediate devastation to a significant percentage of the community, as well as shutting down the ...
"Gov. John Hickenlooper announced today the Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse the state and local governments for eligible costs to reduce hazards in streams caused by the September floods that pose an immediate threat to lives and property."
Two families from Weld County lost everything in last September's floods. We've been following their stories over the past 10 months, learning how difficult it is for families to recover physically and emotionally from a natural disaster.
"Small businesses in Manitou Springs, Colorado, were devastated by flooding in July and August of 2013, and many are still recovering. So the Pike’s Peak United Way, with support from the United Ways of Colorado and the office of the governor, put a $100,000 fund together to help them.When did United Way begin funding small businesses? But in this case, it makes some good sense."
Last year's floods were some of the worst floods Manitou Springs had seen in decades. The Penny Arcade was one of the businesses hit the hardest during the floods, and while it's not entirely back to normal, it certainly have the public's support.
The Bureau of Reclamation is pleased to announce the return to service of the Big Thompson Power Plant. Located at the mouth of the Big Thompson Canyon, the small plant was damaged during the September floods of 2013.
The rubble you see in the photos and video used to be beautiful parks and tree-lined pedestrian trails. On September 12, 2013 everything changed. The small town of Lyons, CO suffered severe damage from a historic flood. Four days of rain that culminated with flash floods swelled the river to enormous proportions and washed away much of what was in its path. My inspiration to train for the Boston Marathon this year is to help my town rebuild the parks and trails that were enjoyed all year by families, children, athletes and visitors alike; and, are now unrecognizable. Local runners, our school's cross country and track teams, mountain bikers, and those out for a stroll can no longer use the well connected system of trails. The river features that so many tubers, kayakers, and anglers have come to enjoy during the summer months are gone. Ball fields that were utilized by youth and adult baseball & softball leagues are covered with 3 to 6 feet of sand, silt, mud and debris. There is no sign of the picnic areas that were once filled year-round. Funding to rebuild the parks is beyond the town's means. It is estimated that the Town of Lyons has suffered approximately 50 million dollars in damages (excluding personal property loss). This is overwhelming considering that Lyons operates on an annual budget of 1 million or less. While FEMA, insurance, and some grants are providing assistance, additional help is needed! Please consider helping in any small way to restore the Lyons park ...
