A week on from flood, 150,000 still stranded in Held Kashmir : September 15, 2014,

SRINAGAR: About 150,000 people were still stranded in their homes a week after Indian-held Kashmir's worst flood in over a century and fears grew on Sunday of an outbreak of diseases from vast fields of stagnant brown water. Indian army and civilian boats trawled through the streets -now water channels - of the state capital Srinagar picking up residents and delivering water, food and basic medicine to people who chose to remain camped out in the upper floors of their houses.

In California drought, "pop-up" wetlands provide bird habitat

For the swirling flock of migrating shorebirds banking to a landing in California's Central Valley, a recently flooded rice field is providing a new kind of triage station during a drought that's drastically reducing places where they can rest on their long journeys. The new arrivals to the field -- hundreds of them -- are dowichers, says conservationist Greg Gulot, standing on a dirt berm and focusing his binoculars to identify a wading bird that is one of the first to fly south in an annual migration that brings 350 species to California's Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys.

Flood anniversary: Oil, gas industry continues to dig out from Weld flood's damage

As the floodwaters washed through the riverbeds and outlying fields of Weld County last fall, oil and gas spills were among the least of the energy industry's worries. What would come after the two-week soak - extensive repairs and recovery and a host of public scrutiny - would continue for the next year as a result of four days of flooding on the Poudre, St. Vrain and South Platte rivers that drenched much of Weld County last September.
