A storm arrived in our home town of Boulder, CO area on September 12, 2013 and dumped nearly 13 inches of rain over a few days. A "wall of water" flooded the streets and homes of Boulder County residents and led to much devastation in the surrounding towns. A record 9.08 inches of rain fell on Sept. 12 alone which set an all-time single-day record, nearly doubling the previous record from 1919. A flood of this magnitude is considered to be a 1 in 1,000 year event.
We set out to capture the flood waters a few hours after the water hit its peak levels. The images below are 360-degree images from that morning. Click them to explore the scene from every angle.
