Mayor Bach talks water money

Stormwater funds are needed

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The City of Colorado Springs held a press conference on Thursday morning to discuss the aftermath of the hail storm that ravaged the area Wednesday night.

Mayor Steve Bach called the massive storm a "once in 100-year storm." The Mayor said there were 21 home rescues and 25 car rescues throughout the course of the evening. No one was injured or killed in the storm and Mayor Bach says everything worked the way it should to keep people safe.

Although there were no personal injuries, property damage is a issue many have to deal with on Thursday. Some basements were flooded with 5-8 feet of water. The hardest-hit areas include neighborhoods around the Citadel Mall. Mayor Bach says he will personally tour those areas.
