Video Friday: Incredible Footage of 2013 Flooding at Glen Haven, Colorado

Glen Haven flood damage

During the 2013 Colorado Floods, Glen Haven up the canyon of the North Fork of the Big Thompson River was hit particularly hard. County Road 43 through here as well as other main roads were just annihilated in this area and many folks had to be rescued by helicopter in the days after the peak of the flood. Their recovery is far from over and the town has struggled to rebuild.
