At the end of each week, we post a "What We’re Watching" blog as we look ahead to the weekend and recap events from the week. We encourage you to share it with your friends and family, and have a safe weekend.
Images of Colorado Flooding & Recovery
As we continue to support the ongoing recovery efforts in Colorado, we wanted to share a few photos of highlighting the work being done to assist survivors. To date, more than 19,000 Coloradans have applied for FEMA assistance, with more than $29 million in approved assistance for impacted individuals and families. If you’re looking for ways to help those affected by the flooding, visit HelpColoradoNow.org for a list of trusted organizations and volunteering resources.

National Preparedness Month Wrap-Up
As the month comes to an end, we want to take a moment to thank everyone who took steps to get prepared for disasters and joined the national preparedness community. All across the country, families, businesses, communities and organizations held preparedness events educating others about emergency preparedness.
Although National Preparedness Month is just about over, we hope you’ll continue to encourage others to make a family plan and to host preparedness community outreach events, fairs, workshops, webinars and trainings.
Have a great weekend!
