Did you know our community can experience flooding from April through September?
Know How to Stay Updated
Tune in to local TV or radio stations – don’t call 911 for information. The best weather information is from the National Weather Service’s website or weather radio. Fort Collins Utilities also provides emergency information on FCTV, online and through social media.
Know the Difference
- Watch: Severe weather is possible – be alert and prepared.
