As of yesterday, according to the Colorado National Guard Facebook page, more than 2,100 people and 500-plus pets had been rescued by the guardsman from the state and U.S. Army troops from Fort Carson -- and the mission is scheduled to continue today thanks to a weather forecast that will allow helicopter flights to aid people still stranded. Look below to see photos from the organization's Flickr stream showing the CNG in action.

Fracking poisons and sewage have poisoned the flood waters. Our responders need to be better protected!

Those soldiers need to be in hazmat suits! That water is completely toxic and carcinogenic!
