Historic flooding due to rain and snowmelt

Saturday, March 16, 2019

Nebraska experienced historic flooding and extreme weather conditions following days of snow and rain that swept through the West and Midwest in early March 2019. According to the NBC News, March 16, 2019,  thousands of people in eastern Nebraska and some parts in western Iowa were urged to evacuate as a massive late-winter storm pushed streams and rivers out of their banks throughout the Midwest. The flooding is expected to get worse and become more widespread as reported in the Washington Post, March 21, 2019, citing NOAA’s National Weather Service.
