9.21.13 … Colorado’s Flood, a 1000-Year Storm, Is One For The History Books … What would Noah think?

kith/kin, floods, CU, Boulder Co, 1000-year Storm:  I remember a few years ago Atlanta had what was touted as 500 year flood.  My family is from Atlanta.  Now the CO flood is being touted as a 1000 year flood.  I have a child in Boulder at CU.  This seems amazing that in a very short span my family has experienced what are world class floods. It gives me a different perspective on Noah … It is interesting that emergency rescues are ceasing, just one week after the flooding.

CU closed after flooding displaces about 400+

Just how rare was the deluge in Colorado that resulted in the deaths of at least 10 people, hundreds unaccounted for, nearly $2 billion in property damage, the evacuation of more than 10,000 people that affected at least a 200 mile stretch of the state, north to south?

Very rare. So rare that the amount of rainfall is likely to occur less than once every 1,000 years.
