Larimer County is working with nonprofit disaster relief workers to provide free sand bags to residents who have been affected by forest fires and erosion flooding over the past two years.
Homeowners in the Black Forest Fire who are in the midst of trying to salvage items from their burned homes are now trying to protect what is left from flooding.
Some people who live along the Poudre River In Laporte, north of Fort Collins, are starting to breathe a sigh of relief. They’re also trying to figure out what to do with all of the sandbags.
Sandbags were handed out at the Windsor Community Center on Wednesday for those who live near rivers are working to protect their homes from possible flooding.
