More than a week later, neighbors who live in Jamestown, Colorado are digging themselves out of the mess left behind.
As you walk through town, you can see where homes once stood. Other structures are partially off the foundation and leaning toward the creek. Many neighbors have several inches of mud and debris inside their homes. Since residents were able to return home they have been working tirelessly to try and clean up the mess of the flood.
“Lower Main Street would run right through town and it was a compact gravel road. Now the road is torn up. We’re seeing downed power lines all over the place and seeing lots of debris brought down by the flow of the stream,” Jamestown Mayor Tara Schoedinger said.
