SUPERIOR, Colo. (KDVR) – For days now, Elizabeth Kupfner has searched for what remains of her family home and rental homes in Superior. It was a painful struggle.
“It was overwhelming. It’s hard. To watch my father after 70 years of losing everything, it was difficult,” said Kupfner. The Kupfners are among the many who are still trying to figure out how to rebuild their lives.
“It was emotional watching (my dad) take things that he collected as a kid. Things like cars and parts, and then they go to a trash can, and to know that he got to a point in his life that he will never recover from,” Kupfner speak.
A GoFundMe . account was set up to help families.
When the Kupfners started cleaning up, they still had all sorts of questions. Some questions have been directed to agencies at the Disaster Assistance Center. But Boulder County agencies provide direct help at Lafayette Disaster Assistance Center will be closed on Saturday night. The County will continue to offer online help.
The Kupfners say a lot of help and information is still needed.
“It involves questions about cleaning. The town tells you to go to the county. The county says to talk to the town and the state. You go to apply for a building permit to get temporary power. They drag their feet. No one has a specific answer like that,” said Kupfner.
Kupfners said the state gave them permission to clean up. The family is trying to salvage what they can after an unimaginable loss.
