Colorado Droughts, Wildfires, and Floods, Oh My! – News Watch

Colorado Droughts, Wildfires, and Floods, Oh My! – News Watch | US natural disasters | Scoop.it
September 16–The view from my window this morning in Boulder, Colorado, is gloomy. Clouds hover over the mountains, reminding me of the storm we have weathered, and the dismal conditions here on the ground.

I think this is really unfortunate for the people who live in or around this area. They have gone through flooding, wildfires, and droughts within such a short period of time. I probably couldn't handle it. The people who live in Boulder must be strong people to be able to stay and endure all of the stuff that is going on.

US needs a better disaster plan

US needs a better disaster plan
Los Angeles Times
Natural disasters have become increasingly costly to the United States, both in terms of the toll they take on American communities and in the direct costs of mounting a federal response.

I think that the US needs a better disaster plan. The US spends lots of money and I think if they found a different way to help out they wouldn't spend so much on them.
Jack Sytsma's comment, October 1, 2013 10:32 AM
I think this is true because as many hurricanes we get in a year, we should be more prepared because they are so common. And not just hurricanes. Things like tornadoes, fires, and floods should be better prevented because of all the technology we have now.

The U.S. does have somewhat of a good disaster plan but it needs a better one. These natural disasters are getting worse and worse as time goes on.

I think that the people who work at these oil places should of been aware that it was going to flood. If they would of moved quicker not as much oil would of been lost in the flooding.
Cameron Miller's comment, October 1, 2013 10:22 AM
Even though there is a smaller amount of oil that leaked/spilled I think that the people who are responsible for building the oil rigs should help with the clean up. Farming can be affected by this oil too.
Kolbie VanDusseldorp's comment, October 3, 2013 11:18 PM
This is important because it somewhat relates to the big oil spill. The people responsible for building the rigs should have to be in charge of cleaning up the mess, although they could'nt do much to keep it from leaking.

The governor says that 26,000 gallons of oil has spilled and it is too much. I agree and think its too much. Even that amount of oil can have an affect on the environment, it can get into the waterways and kill fish and other animals. I'm surprised that more wasn't spilled judging from the amount of flooding.

I think it is good for New York to do this. So many people have been affected by Hurricane Sandy even to this day. This will give people some more time to sign up and get help. A lot of money is being put into this so I think it is a good idea.
Delaney Poole's comment, October 2, 2013 6:07 PM
I agree, I think that it's nice that other states are helping out someone else whose been affected by something big and tragic. I'm glad that things are getting better and that people are coming together for a good cause.

If you live in a place that gets hurricanes you should probably have a plan. When a hurricane hits and you don't have a plan in place to recover you will probably not recover, at least not in the near future. This is a key role into the success or failure of your business if a hurricane hits.
Delaney Poole's comment, October 2, 2013 6:17 PM
I agree, I think that if you know you live in a hurricane state you should be prepared. Also you need to know what to do incase something doesn't work out or if something doesn't go as plan.

The drop in number of people that are missing is good but over 60 is still a large number. Seven people have been confirmed dead, and three have been presumed dead. The state will spend about 135 million for the reconstruction of streets and bridges. This will help Colorado get back on its feet after the bad flooding.
Jack Sytsma's comment, October 1, 2013 10:34 AM
I agree this is good, but we should've been better prepared for a flood. The drop in the number of people, yes a good thing, but still it is sort of a high number. As much prevention people do for floods, you'd think this bad of stuff wouldn't have happened.. but again... it is a flood.

Even though these pictures are not positive they are still captivating. These show the history of flooding in Boulder and shows us that there is a possibility for floods there at any point in time. The people in boulder need to be prepared if and when a big flood hits. If the people aren't prepared well, it won't turn out good for them.
