Utah National Guard
Members of Utah’s National Guard are now on their way to Colorado to help repair roads damaged by the flooding.
While officials promise that direct aid to Colorado flooding victims won’t be affected by a possible government shutdown, a standoff in Washington could still end up hurting the state’s recovery efforts.
A ripple effect might be felt in Colorado if there’s a government shut down next week as road repairs could hit a major snag.
Utah National Guard helicopters and personnel no longer are headed to Colorado to help fight wildfires this weekend, but they remain ready to mobilize if needed, the governor said late Friday.
