FEMA Surveys Extreme Flood Damage In Colorado

IN SYLVANDALE ALONG THE BIG THOMPSON RIVER.. YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORK HARD TO SEE THE DAMAGE.

down here i just wrote 100 percent destroyed.

FOR THE FIRST TIME.. FEMA AND COUNTY ASSESSMENT CREWS ARE DIGGING INTO THE DAMAGE.

i'm glad to see them, you know.
the sooner the better it doesn't look anything like it did.

COLLECTING INFORMATION FOR THE COUNTY…

we have been receiving numerous phone calls from people requesting this information because they'r waiting for this determination bc that's what they're using to turn into their insurance company.

TO DETERMINE WHICH-- OF ANY OF THESE HOMES ARE SALVAGEABLE

People want to get back into their homes. everybody understands that we're trying to help them get back into their homes but get back into their homes safely.

many of the properties FEMA is looking at this week look a lot like this, tons of sand right in the middle of the living room. but after today's assessment some may learn they can never rebuild.

they're required to come into compliance with regulation and some cases that's going to be the difference between being able to rebuild or not.

DETERMINING THE SCOPE OF DAMAGE IN LARIMER COUNTY IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS STARTING OVER.

hopefully they'll be safe when the next flood comes and the next flood will come because this is a flood plane we just don't know when.

NINA SPARANO REPORTING .. AND SHE SAYS FEMA WILL PROVIDE THE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT TO LARIMER COUNTY.
WITHIN TWO WEEKS THE COUNTY WILL LET THE HOMEOWNERS KNOW IF THEY WILL EVER BE ABLE TO RETURN.
