Colorado Flooding-Day 5: Weld County Badly Hit-Photos

It is still raining in the eastern Colorado for the fifth day on Saturday, causing more damages to the flooded area as rivers overflow their banks.

Houses, roads, farms and bridges are damaged and destroyed by the flood waters and landslides.

One of the hardest hit areas are in Weld County where the swollen St. Vrain, Big Thompson and Cache La Poudre rivers empty into the South Platte River.

Sean Conway, a commissioner of rural Weld County, said that, “This is a five hundred to a hundred years flood.”

The National Weather Service said that some areas have seen more than 15 inches of rain in a span of three days, which is above average rainfall totals for an entire year.

National Guard troops and local emergency crews team up on search and rescue missions.

The seasonal monsoon rains started on Monday and by Wednesday night, flood waters flowed down from the mountain canyons into the foothills, particularly Boulder.

Ashlee Herring, a spokeswoman for the Boulder Office of Emergency Management said, “All the roads on the western side of the county are lost – they’re gone.”

 

Further downstream in Morgan County, the farming communities of Weldona, Goodrich, Muir Springs and Orchard were under evacuation orders.

Flood Caused Garbage Islands In China’s Yangtze River-Pictures

Garbage in Yangtze River.

There are garbage islands in China’s Yangtze River after the terrible flood.

Flood caused garbage islands in China's Yangtze River

In some part, the garbage were so thick that people can stand on it.

Branches from fallen trees.

Flood caused the garbage islands by carrying garbage from one place to another and dump them into the river.

Garbage pollute the river and can cause health problems.

The flood damaged buildings and trees.

The debris from the flood caused the garbage islands too.

Water levels crept lower from a record high in the reservoir behind the massive Three Gorges Dam on Sunday, but authorities warned they did not know whether the drop would continue.

The Three Gorges Dam is on the Yangtze River.

The Three Gorge Dam on China's Yangtze River.

And the amount of garbage in the river could jam the gate of the dam.

The decaying garbage can also pollute the water quality.

The water will became smelly and dirty.

And there will be lots of  bad germs in the river.

The germs can kill the fishes and other animals that live in the river.

Contaminated water is bad for human too.

It can cause Cholera, diarrhoea, food poisoning, some skin diseases and other health problems.

Dangerous chemicals were also swept to the river by the flood.

I knew that flood cause garbage but I did not know that it can caused garbage islands.

This is another disaster for China.

A Flood In Minas Gerais

Flood In Minas Gerais...
Flood In Minas Gerais...

Just now I watched a video about the flood in Minas Gerais.

The video was from Reuters.

Minas Gerais is in Brazil.

It was a big flood.

The colour of the flood water was brown because the water came from the river.

The water was mixed with mud.

The water moved very fast.

I saw cars washed away by the flood.

I saw a truck was washed away too.

The water was so high .

People have to bring their things because they don’t want the things destroyed in the flood.

Some people was trapped in the water and hang to lamp posts and trees because they might fall in to the water or get washed away like the cars and truck.

The rescue team used helicopter to save the people.

I think lots of buildings were damaged.

Flood is a disaster.
