In the News...Colorado floods

When I started accumulating historic weather event images lately, I didn't imagine that Eon's home, Boulder County, Colorado, would soon see such calamitous weather. I have added a few images to Eon's In the News collection. As is our policy, images in this gallery are available to download, free of charge and without watermarks, at all resolutions during the month of the news events.

Here's one picture from the group of images depicting what our fellow residents of Colorado are experiencing this week.

Looking back at Colorado history, I also came across this image from the disastrous flood of 1864, in an area that is now part of Denver:

Weird weather!

New on Eon is Weird Weather, a gallery we will be adding to frequently for the rest of the year. As we are in the midst of hurricane season, we have added a number of subgalleries related to famous--or infamous--storms of years past. We have a lot to add to this category, so check back frequently!
