DENVER - Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper met with FEMA administrator Craig Fugate to let the public know how they are responding to massive flooding.
The two men met Monday at the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management in Centennial.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is sending two 80-person search-and-rescue teams to assist with continuing rescues in Larimer County and providing aid to other communities following massive flooding that began Wednesday along the Front Range.
Fugate said individual assistance for people who have had losses is available. Those seeking assistance must register at 1-800-621-FEMA or disasterassistance.gov. FEMA said over 3,000 families have already registered.
FEMA said the Civil Air Patrol will fly over the affected areas and take pictures of the homes that are damaged.
Hickenlooper said at Monday's news conference that many of the bridges, culverts and roadways that were damaged and destroyed were built a long time ago, and with federal assistance, the state could come away with a stronger infrastructure.
