Missouri River raises to record flooding at Nebraska City
17 March, 2019, 06:58 | Author: Lucille Rivera
Rescue efforts in eastern Nebraska were hampered by reports of levee breaches and washouts of bridges and roads, including part of Nebraska 92 leading in and out of southwest Omaha. Some local waterways also have intact ice sheets, which may break up and shift during this event, increasing the risk of ice jam flooding. Floodwalls protect city to 20 feet.
Moderate to major river flooding across parts of the MS and Missouri river valleys may also persist into the weekend. The level of the Missouri River is rising rapidly, and this has caused requests to evacuate residents. Flood stage is 17 feet, and the river is forecast to rise above flood stage by Wednesday evening and crest near 20 feet by after midnight tonight. The rain also melted the snowpack, and with the ground deeply frozen, the water had nowhere to go except onto city streets, into home basements, and into rivers and streams.
People living in the Upper River Don catchment area have been urged to be prepared for possible flooding. The flooding has sparked dozens of road closures and several evacuations in Missouri, Wisconsin and Minnesota as well.
When a flood alert is in place, residents are advised to prepare a bag containing medicines, insurance documents and other important items, and to check for flood warnings. "Eventually as we head into next week, we should see more and more of the rivers start to recede below flood stage". Gass Haney Funeral Home confirmed James Wilke's death.

Officials in other parts of Nebraska said a Norfolk man was seen on top of his flooded vehicle late on Thursday before being swept away and another man was missing after being swept away when a dam collapsed on the Niobrara river.
Officials are confident that the flooding around the plant presents no danger to the public, power district spokesman Mark Becker said.
As of Tuesday morning, the Mississippi River at Clarskville and Louisiana were each subject to a flood warning issued by the National Weather Service, which projected that the river at both places will experience minor flooding Thursday and Friday and crest just at the cut-off for moderate flooding late next week. In its wake, he said, water was "rising swiftly".
