DENVER (AP) - Gov. John Hickenlooper says Colorado needs to start rebuilding soon after flooding subsides to get people back in their homes and children back to school.
During an interview on KMGH-TV, the governor said Monday some people estimate it will take more than a year to rebuild damaged buildings and roads and he said Colorado does not have that much time.
Hickenlooper says he is bringing in engineers from Vermont who helped get that state back on its feet quickly following Tropical Storm Irene two years ago to help guide Colorado's efforts.
