More flood waters rising in storm damaged U.S. Midwest

Flooding from last week’s storm has already caused nearly $1.5 billion in damage in Nebraska, killed at least four people with another missing.

Some 2,400 Nebraska homes and businesses have been destroyed or damaged, Governor Pete Ricketts said on Wednesday (March 20).

Police drone and cell phone video released on Thursday (March 21) showed badly flooded residential streets in the town of Bellevue, Nebraska, from the day before.

The Missouri River’s next major flood crest is forecast to hit St. Joseph, Missouri, Friday (March 22) morning and a day later in Kansas City, Missouri, 55 miles (90 km) to the south, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The waters have already swamped a large swath of Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa along North America’s longest river. A state of emergency has been declared in all or parts of the three Midwestern farm states.
