EVANS, Colo. -- Flooding damaged hundreds of homes in the city of Evans. And now, nearly 300 homes have been condemned.

The city of Evans is in recovery mode, which has included inspections from officials over the last two days. After those inspections, those 300 odd homes were deemed unlivable.

The recent flooding ravaged the town, forcing the City of Evans to put up security fences around evacuation areas in the Bella Vista and Eastwood Village neighborhoods this week. Officials hope it will prevent looting.

No one will be allowed to enter the fenced area between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m.

Depending on the status of their property, residents were being allowed to enter the evacuated area from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, with proof of residency at the check point on 37th & Pueblo Streets.

The town is holding two informational meetings for flood victims at the City of Evans Community Complex on 37th Street. One meeting is at 2 p.m. Friday, and the other is on Saturday at 11 a.m.
