During a severe flash flood in Colorado City, AZ, and Hildale, UT, last week, a powerful collection of water, mud and debris coursed its way down city streets, underneath bridges, and across the land. Search and rescue personnel worked tirelessly to find those swept up in the flooding, though not everyone could be saved.

While the aftermath of the storm required substantial effort and heavy machinery to clear, the Colorado City Post Office, which also serves the Hildale community, withstood nature’s fury relatively unscathed.

Post Office staff avoided injury from the destructive storm and opened the office for business as schedule the next day.
