Seen The Marshall Fire Aftermath? President Biden Is Coming To See It This Week
A week after the most destructive fire in Colorado History, President Joe Biden announced that he's coming to tour the Marshall Fire area himself this week.
President Biden Coming To Colorado
Sometimes pictures and videos of a scene don't do things justice as far as painting a picture of just how horrible a situation is.
We've all seen some incredibly heartbreaking photos of the Marshall Wildfire and the aftermath that its path of destruction left behind for the towns of Superior, and Louisville, Colorado. Now, almost a week after this tragic event, Denver 7 is reporting that President Joe Biden will be in Colorado this Friday to tour the damage that the Marshall Fire has created.
U.S. Congressman Joe Neguse, who is the representative of the Superior and Louisville areas said in a statement:
"I’m deeply grateful to President Biden and his Administration for authorizing a swift Disaster Declaration this past weekend to begin the flow of federal funds to our community, and I look forward to hosting him on the ground on Friday to share firsthand the powerful stories of Boulder County’s resilience and strength."
Just six days ago, the Marshall Fire tore through those two towns leaving over 1,000 homes damaged and destroyed. The hurricane-type winds made the fire unbeatable at the time so the focus for most first responders was to get folks evacuated and save their lives.
As of this writing, only two people have been reported missing which is a miracle in itself. Now the focus will be to rebuild these two great cities better and stronger than ever. Further information on how you can help can be found HERE.
President Biden will tour the areas alongside Colorado Governer Jared Polis and it's certain that he'll feel the exact same way the rest of us do. He's already approved fire recovery funds and more with the "Major Disaster Declaration" and after seeing it for himself, one would guess he'll want to do even more.
