The 11 best online flooding resources

The 11 best online flooding resources

Where to look for reliable weather updates.
The National Weather Service lets you check the weather in your area by zip code. Stay up-to-date by checking the site for forecasts and warnings.

How to find Larimer and Weld road closures.
Larimer County and Weld County offer maps of road closures and flood areas on their websites. The Colorado Department of Transportation also hosts a comprehensive list of road closures throughout the state on its website. If you must leave your home, plan your route carefully and expect delays. Remember, if you see floodwaters, do not attempt to drive through them. Turn around, don’t drown.

How to find out about evacuations and where to find shelter.
Register for emergency alerts to receive evacuation notifications by phone from Larimer County or Weld County. This free service provides alerts through phone calls, text messages and email.
For a list of shelters, check listings by the American Red Cross Colorado chapters or theSalvation Army.

Where to take animals.
The Larimer Humane Society is prepared to temporarily shelter household animals — dogs, cats, bird, fish or poultry. Animal owners should coordinate a drop-off in advance. Livestock, goats, sheep, pigs and horses can be taken to the Ranchway Feeds building at Budweiser Events Center and should be brought to the west pavilion. Large animal owners do not need to call ahead before bringing their animals. Additionally, Colorado State University is on standby to take in additional animals as needed.

How to help others. is a partnership between the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster. This initiative brings together government agencies and non-profit organizations so they may better assist communities affected by disasters. Visit their website to learn how to help those affected by flooding in Colorado.

Tips to keep you safe during a flood and the cleanup process.
