    I saw this on the Today show this morning. Mother Nature is not being nice. Someone must have peed in her Cheerios.

    Been raining for five days here in the desert, flash flood warnings daily. The Gila River went up 8 feet in one day.

    LIFE THREATENING SITUATION! immediate evacuations ordered for residents of multiple Commerce City's Irondale neighborhoods. Jim Cantore , KFOR-TV , Sean Schofer TVN

    Dam expected to breech in the next hour releasing an expansive wall of water 15-20 ft deep... If this estimate is even close to accurate this would have devastating impacts for these Northeast Denver communities.

    Exact neighborhoods ordered for evac and more details are listed here at NBC affiliate Denver.

    It's now characterized as a 1000-year flood and there are more than 600 people unaccounted for.

    The rains started last Monday in Boulder county, and from Wednesday through Friday, more than half a year’s worth of rain fell on the region, with 24-hour rainfall amounts of between 8 and 10 inches — enough, according to Climate Central, to classify the storm as a one in 1,000 year event, meaning there’s a 0.1 percent chance that a similar flood could happen in a given year.

    I've never seen this type of weather here! My husband is a native (since the early 70's) and he hasn't either! Positive thoughts and prayers needed here in Colorado!!

    DD lives in Grand Junction, so they are on the other side of the state, however SIL drives semi up on the mountains and he said he's been wading in mud. They had to get the snowplows out to push the mud/water off the roads. One morning after his shift, he had to wash himself off at the truck wash before he could get in his car to go home. He was mud up to his waist. They will be glad when it quits raining also, but they are so much better off than all those people who were stranded, and the poor people who lost their lives.

    It's a terrible ecological disaster...oil spills from gas stations, oil wells, pipelines and oil storage facilities in flood zones means there are dozens if not hundreds of toxic sites and in some places, drinking water is contaminated with E. coli and is unsafe to drink, water and sewage lines will cost at least $1 million to repair, and roads and bridges are badly damaged.

    Some people may not be back in their homes for two to six months.

    Statewide, only about 22,000 homeowners have flood insurance policies according to FEMA. With 2.2 million housing units in Colorado, according to Census figures, that means about 1 percent of the state’'s residences have flood coverage. Thousands of people who don't have flood insurance could face staggering costs to rebuild after the devastating floods. I have to admit, before I saw a flash flood really high up on a mountain, I never would have thought flood insurance was terribly necessary in a high altitude location.

    If you'd like to help, please be cautious about the charities you send money to. There are a lot of fly-by-night types that thrive on disasters like this.

    If you’re looking for a way to give, do some research to ensure that your donation will go to a reputable organization. Urgent appeals that you get in person, by phone or mail, by e-mail, on websites, or on social networking sites may not be on the up-and-up. Unfortunately, legitimate charities face competition from fraudsters who either solicit for bogus charities or aren't entirely honest about how a so-called charity will use your contribution.

    If you’re asked to make a charitable donation to support victims of the flooding in Colorado, consider these tips:
    icon_arrow.gif Donate to charities you know and trust. Be alert for charities that seem to have sprung up overnight in connection with current events.
    icon_arrow.gif Ask if a caller is a paid fundraiser, who they work for, and what percentage of your donation goes to the charity and to the fundraiser. If you don’t get a clear answer – or if you don’t like the answer – consider donating to a different organization.
    icon_arrow.gif Don’t give out personal or financial information – including your credit card or bank account number – a unless you know the charity is reputable.
    icon_arrow.gif Never send cash: you can’t be sure the organization will receive your donation, and you won’t have a record for tax purposes.
    icon_arrow.gif Check out the charity with the Better Business Bureau's (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance (bbb.org/us/charity), Charity Navigator (charitynavigator.org), Charity Watch (charitywatch.org), or GuideStar (guidestar.org).
    icon_arrow.gif Find out if the charity or fundraiser must be registered in your state by contacting the National Association of State Charity Officials (nasconet.org).

    If you choose to give to one of the more recognizable charities (American Red Cross, Salvation Army, American Humane Association, etc), DESIGNATE where the money is to go, i.e. Colorado Flood Relief so that it doesn't go unintentionally to other disaster relief efforts.
