The death toll from this past weekend’s blizzard in southeastern Colorado has now risen into the thousands, according to CBS Local in Denver.
Seven-foot-high (2 meter) snow drifts buried cows and pummeled wheat crops near the Kansas and Oklahoma borders, costing farmers millions of dollars.
It is now estimated that as many as 10,000 cattle were killed in the is being called a “rare spring storm,” which dumped 30 inches of snow in some areas.
The damage from this storm is being compared to that from the blizzard of 2007, considered one of the worst snowstorms in Colorado history.
This past weekend, a huge snowstorm also devastated the western Kansas wheat crop.
