Ditch Playing in Ditches
Welcome to the Flash Flood Education page, sponsored by the City of Colorado Springs.
Flash floods are one of the most serious natural threats in our area. Even though we live in a semi-arid environment, short-lived, powerful storms can and do happen. Often small streams can become rushing torrents for a brief period of time. Anyone caught in a streambed or ditch during such a flash flood has little chance of survival. That's why it's so important to learn more about flash floods!
