  • Summer Rains Threaten Burn Scar Areas and Pose Flash Flood Threat, Be Prepared and Consider Buying Flood Insurance
    by Brian.Hvinden on July 30, 2021 at 5:52 pm

    Summer Rains Threaten Burn Scar Areas and Pose Flash Flood Threat, Be Prepared and Consider Buying Flood Insurance DENVER – Recent years have brought many wildfires to the West.  Beyond the damage caused and the challenges in battling them, fires often leave a hidden legacy – flash floods and mudflows.  Wildfires leave the ground charred and unable to absorb water. As demonstrated this year, this creates a flash flooding potential for years to come, even in areas that rarely experienced flooding in the past. Sometimes these flash floods can pick up ash and large debris, turning into mudflows that are highly destructive. It's important to be aware of your situation and to know if you live near a burn scar area. Make sure you have a solid evacuation plan and monitor changing weather conditions via the National Weather Service or local media outlets.  You also should have important documents in a safe and easy to access place should you be forced to evacuate.
