Big Thompson Flood: A Personal Recollection

Update: In 2016, I attended the 40th anniversary memorial event with my dad. View photos

Many have asked to view the full transcript of my dad's recording that details his personal experience in the Big Thompson Flood of 1976.

That said, I felt it was important to transcribe the recording exactly as it was spoken.        Transcribed by Natalie Starnes from audiotape recorded July 2006 by 1976 Big Thompson…
