What has been called a 100-year storm and even referred to as being of ‘biblical’ proportions is very slowly coming to an end.  The worst of the rain fell on Thursday, September 12 with locations in Colorado’s foothills reporting in excess of 8 inches of rainfall.

Among the hardest hit areas were the college town of Boulder and picturesque Estes Park.  Both cities have seen extensive flooding and damage totals across the state will be well into the tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars.

The two videos below capture the raging waters as they pummeled the communities.

The first video shows Boulder as well as some commentary by Gov. John Hickenlooper.  The second is of downtown Estes Park.
