Victims' families and survivors gathered in Fort Collins Saturday to mark the 10th anniversary of a flood that killed five people.

A plaque was dedicated and those who helped respond when the flood waters tore through a mobile home park over July 27th and 28th, 1997, were honored.

At least 50 people attended the memorial, which included a candlelit walk at Creekside Park.

Some parts of Fort Collins got at least eight inches of rain that night.

Severe flooding along Spring Creek and Colorado State University's main campus resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.

Josie Loera was among those at the memorial Saturday.

Her mother died in the flood and she and other family members return to the park every year to remember.
