Chaos in the world brings uneasiness, but it also allows the opportunity for creativity and growth.

   The COVID-19 pandemic has paralyzed the state; but Colorado is not oblivious to disasters.
   
   Here are five examples of major disasters that Coloradans survived.
   
   Denver Flood (1965)
   It began with springtime earthquakes, tornadoes and hailstorms up and down the Front Range. The weather brought record-breaking rains and resulted in the death of 21 people and $4 billion in damages.
   
   Thompson Canyon Flood (1976)
   The Thompson Canyon Flood took the lives of 144 people and resulted in $140 million worth of damages.
   
   Denver Hailstorm (1990)
   The Denver hailstorm of 1990 dropped hailstones the size of baseballs, which destroyed numerous homes, cars and businesses; and injured 47 people who were stuck on the rides at Elitch Garden theme park. The estimated damage for the hailstorm: a record $1 billion.
   
   Hayman Fire (2002)
   The Hayman Fire was the largest wildfire in Colorado, destroying 138,114 acres from June 8 to July 18, 2002. The fire resulted in $40 million in firefighting costs, 133 lost homes and displaced 5,340 people? The fire occurred when a forestry technician said she started a campfire to burn a letter from her estranged husband, although it was later speculated that she started the fire so she could put it out and be considered a hero for saving the forest.

   The Black Forest Fire (2013)
   A fire that started around 1 p.m. on June 11, 2013, near Highway 83 and Shoup Road in Black Forest burned 14,280 acres. Two people died and over 500 homes were destroyed. On June 20, the fire was 100 percent contained.
