Elkhorn River Flood Warning

Elkhorn River Flood Warning

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning, as rain and melting snow cause the Saginaw River in Saginaw and the Tittabawassee River in Midland to rise.

The National Weather Service says the Missouri River at St. Joseph reached almost 26 feet on Saturday, about a foot below what's considered major flooding at the northwest Missouri city.

Farther east, the Mississippi River saw moderate flooding in IL from Rock Island south to Gladstone. "We're trying to get a handle on the situation with the flooding across the state, but two days ago, and even yesterday, we were evacuating people because of the rising waters", Getter said.

"Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses".

A flood watch remains in effect from late tonight thru Thursday evening for portions of Iowa and Nebraska including northeast Nebraska. The flooding was the worst in almost a decade in places.

Some of the most significant flooding thus far has hit eastern Nebraska.

According to a news release, the Missouri River's level at the location of the nuclear power plant had climbed to 42.5 feet, or 899.05 feet above sea level. The president also praised first responders and emergency response teams for doing "a great job dealing" with flooding, high winds and road closures.

A levee breach is threatening the Fremont area and surrounding communities, with officials urging residents to evacuate immediately.

At least four deaths were linked to the weather system.

The Coast Guard and Corps also requested all river vessel operators create as little wake as possible between St. Joseph downstream to Kansas City to minimize levee damage.

The National Weather Service river gauge upstream from Cooper Nuclear Station was swept away, so measurements from the plant were being shared with the NWS, Becker told Newsweek.

Major to moderate flooding has been reported across Nebraska. Municipal flood co-ordinators are being advised to warn residents in Warning Zone 1. Don't drive through flooded roads.
