How to spot water signs in the mountains
People looking for signs of the upcoming flood in the Colorado River Valley may have to look elsewhere.
The signs are so plentiful, people can’t miss them.
The city of Pueblo posted the signs on a large billboard in the middle of the city’s downtown.
The city’s billboard, however, says the signs are not there to attract visitors.
They’re meant to warn residents that the flood is coming.
Pueblo is among many communities in the region that have posted signs along the river.
Pueblos signs are visible for miles.
Peshawar is one of those cities.
It’s also one of the few in the U.S. that does not have a sign up.
The signs are there to warn people not to drive along the flood plain.
“It’s a really sad thing,” said Peshawar Mayor Michael Haidar.
“We don’t want to see people die.”
Haidar said the signs have helped deter people from driving on the flood plains.
“We’ve had people come from all over the place to look at the signs and then drive out on to the river,” he said.
“They see what they want to look like.”

Petersburg, Ga., also has a sign warning people not for the first time to be cautious in the area.
Pete Stempe, the town’s city manager, said he didn’t think about it at first, but he had to.
The flood warning signs are just over two miles from the highway sign and about five miles from where the highway signs are.
“I thought, ‘Well, I’ll just get used to it,'” Stemple said.
Stempe said it’s just a matter of time before the signs become permanent.
“This is a big one,” he added.
“There’s going to be a lot of flood signs up and down the river, so it’s not like we have to worry about anything other than it being a very, very significant event,” Stemp said.
