Videos: Raw footage of breathtaking aerial rescues, flood-ravaged locations
As we noted in a post yesterday, the best way to get a feel for the vast sweep of flooding in Colorado is to view it from the air. Understanding this, 7News, the local station that's offered the most comprehensive coverage of this story to date (going wall-to-wall on Sunday when a number of other Denver outlets stuck with football), has shared raw helicopter footage shot over Estes Park and many other flood-ravaged areas. No commentators, no interruptions: Just breathtaking looks at rescues and damage that will take a long, long time to repair. Check out a dozen examples below.
