Flooding potential from the Waldo Canyon fire

This map shows the probability of a flood in the highlighted areas before the Waldo Canyon fire. The areas shaded in orange are at risk from a 100-year flood. The areas shaded in green are at risk from a 500-year flood. Experts say the possible severity of flooding could be worse because of the fire.
