Photos: Jamestown, Colorado, flood devastation

These photos are from Jamestown, Colo., on Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013. Much of the town has been destroyed, and there was no access to the town until late Sunday, when crews finalized repairs on the upper portion of the road, for emergency traffic only.

The town has no infrastructure or running water, however some parts of town amazingly enough have electricity. A dozen or so residents stayed as most of the town was evacuated by helicopters.
