Vision by hams help flood rescue

The flooding disaster continues to hit the US state of Colorado as rivers
overflowed damaging roads and property in the Rocky Mountain foothills.

Four people have died since the floods began Wednesday. Hundreds have not
been heard from as rescuers make progress in an area that has many narrow
washed out roads.

Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) volunteers are in the area providing
essential emergency communication to Red Cross and other operation centres.

The Boulder County has used airborne amateur television cameras to survey
those in need of rescue and the damage.

ARRL Colorado Section ARES Manager Jack Ciaccia WM?G said unmanned drones,
both fixed wing and a helicopter, have been transmitting ATV video that can
be evaluated by officials.

Boulder County Emergency Coordinator Al Bishop K?ARK owns Reference Technology
and the company is providing the drones.

It was not the first time rescuers have used amateur radio vision of the
scene. For example, during the 2009 oil spill clean-up supported by the Specialist
Communications Group in Queensland vision came from a helmet-mounted camera.
