Saving Family Treasures

Thousands of Coloradans have been displaced and more are being encouraged to evacuate as the threat of flash floods and mudslides continue. When the flooding abates, residents will begin the daunting task of sorting through the wreckage. Treasured family heirlooms and keepsakes will likely have been damaged by the floodwater, but these mementos may be salvageable. For tips on dealing with water damaged objects, see our press release on Saving Family Treasures CO Flooding.
