2013 Colorado Flood web maps #COFlood #BoulderFlood

An incredible amount of rainfall in the State of Colorado has led to flash flooding, evacuations, and unfortunately, the loss of life. I have embedded a flood monitoring map here below which is produced by the Esri Disaster Response Program (Disaster Assistance for GIS and Mapping). You can go this website and embed a similar map yourself by using the "Link" Button. 

Another great resource for maps and information for weather in the Denver Area is Brendan's Weather Blog. He produced this next map and I encourage you to check out his site. From his blog: 

"CoCoRaHS is an excellent non-profit community based network of volunteers collecting rain, hail, and snow data. The data is used widely across multiple agencies from the National Weather Service to city organizers. Please visit their site if you are interested in getting involved. 

Here are three day totals from CoCoRaHS observers in Colorado. Anywhere from .5" to 10" being reported since Monday, with many 6"+ reports from the Boulder flood region."
