In September 2013, rain pounded Colorado. Catastrophic flooding killed ten people and destroyed more than 1,800 structures, including six mobile home parks with large Latino populations.

Back then, we interviewed Colorado-based reporter Lesly McClurg about stories she collected from Latinos who were affected by the floods.

Now, one year later, Lesley McClurg brings us a report about how families have struggled to recover in the face of language barriers, split communities, and the fear of revealing their immigration status. She visited two families in northern Colorado who lost everything.
