At 8:35 AM on the 11th of April, 2015, a strong earthquake centered near Golden rocked Colorado. The quake was centered at the southern tip of the Golden Fault Line and registered at 6.2 on the Richter Scale. It was felt as far away as Casper, WY and Grand Junction.

Roads west of Denver are reported to be impassable. Multiple rock slides have closed access to the mountain communities west of the Front Range. There are reports of cracking on the face of the Mt. Elbert Forebay Dam. Extensive structural damage is being reported up and down the Colorado Front Range with media reporting that no large structure has gone undamaged.

The Denver metropolitan area is experiencing rolling power outages, loss of phone and cellular service, water and gas main breaks. Emergency services are focusing their efforts on major structural damage and high density areas of the metroplex.

In the wake of the earthquake there is an unknown number of casualties and known fatalities can be identified almost immediately. Police, fire and EMS are unable to respond to the scope of the disaster. Volunteer units are some of the earliest response available.

This is only a drill.
