August 29, 2011

Colorado officials say they have no money to help earthquake victims in southern Colorado.

Department of Local Affairs spokeswoman Linda Rice said the state is providing technical assistance, including geological analysis, aerial photography and water quality testing.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, most victims have found that their insurance does not cover earthquakes.

Monday’s magnitude-5.3 quake in southern Colorado was the state’s largest since 1967. It caused minor damage and no injuries.
