National Guard assisting with evacuations in Beulah

BEULAH, Colo. - The National Guard has stepped in to help with evacuations in Beulah. 

At least seven people along North Creek Road have had to be airlifted out because they were unable to leave their homes.  

The National Guard landed a UH-60 helicopter in designated safe landing zone areas and transporting them to the evacuation center at the Beulah School.

“While the evacuations were voluntary, it was necessary to assist these people in safely getting them from their homes due to not having access on Northcreek Road because of washouts on that road,” said Pueblo County Undersheriff JR Hall. “We are grateful for the assistance provided by the Board of County Commissioners, our partners at the state and the Colorado National Guard.”

No injuries have been reported.

State and Pueblo County agencies continued to work throughout the day in assessing damage, clearing debris and making minor repairs to washed out roads throughout the Beulah Valley.
