LOVELAND - More than 100 evacuees from around Larimer County were at the Budweiser Events Center Friday night hoping to learn new information about when they can return to their homes.

Mostly everyone who was at the meeting, held by representatives from the sheriff's office, FEMA and the Colorado Department of Transportation, were in someway affected by the flood. Many people at the meeting lost their homes but some know their homes are still standing.

A spokesperson for CDOT says one of their top priorities is creating a pathway for people to return to their homes. The spokesperson says at first that may be gravel or dirt roads, but they're working around the clock to make sure it happens as fast as possible.

FEMA representatives encouraged neighbors to register, so they can assist them as they begin the path to recovery.

The Sheriff of Larimer County showed pictures of some of the hardest hit areas. For the first time, many neighbors were able to see the devastation in towns like Drake, where many roadways and bridges have been washed out.

Evacuees were reassured that the county will be there for them every step of the recovery process.
