More Local Volunteers Head To Colorado For Relief Efforts

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - The heavy rains may have stopped, but it's still a long recovery for residents in Colorado.

Record setting rainfall throughout September created some of the worst flooding the state has seen in years. 5 volunteers from the South Central Kentucky American Red Cross are in the area to help.

Photos sent back by the volunteers show the extreme devastation across the state.

"They mentioned that there was one road in and one road out. A trip that should normally take about 45 minutes took about 4 hours. They are definitely in the hard hit areas doing hot shot visits which is actually going out to meet with the clients, where they are," says Executive Director Jennifer Capps.

Volunteers are asked to make a 2 week commitment on every recovery effort, but many could be staying in Colorado longer.
