Flooding occurs from snowmelt on the Poudre River and flash flooding from intense thunderstorms during monsoon season, which runs from mid-July to mid-August. However, it doesn’t take a large flood to cause problems. Afternoon or evening thunderstorms can cause issues in isolated areas. Basements, streets, sidewalks and trails may become unsafe. Urban flooding – know the risk.💻 Check out the many resources available online to help you learn more and protect yourself. www.fcgov.com/stormwater👏 Also, a special thank you to our committee members for helping us spread the word.
