Disasters in History: The South Platte River Flood of 1965 via ZOOM

February 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

South Platte River Flood 1965

South Platt Flood

Disasters in History: The South Platte River Flood of 1965

Flood season is on the horizon, but the South Platte River is less likely to experience “an outstanding hydrologic event” because of the lessons learned from the June 1965 flood.

Einar Jensen will dissect the factors leading to the flood and the flood’s short-term and long-term impacts to our community.

This presentation will include tips on how to make our families and property safer from flooding.
