    Its a mess here. I live in NC NE. The bridges over the Niobrara River have either all been destroyed or compromised so for right now its over a 2 hour drive east or west to go north into South Dakota. That's if the roads haven't washed out. Won't know until the water recede. Many small communities are flooded. This is a historical event that no one alive has ever witnessed.

    Didnt see it on our national “news”. I’m seeing a lot of Pelosi picking her nose, Omar and Cortez spouting their daily ignorantisms as they talk out of their rectums, the announcement of Beto the Irishman O’Rourk who wants to exploit Latinos, acting like he is Latino, in the style of Hilary talking black jive to an audience of African Americans, that he is running for President and asking for people’s handouts to fill his gas tank, but little to no coverage about the devistation of our own people in Nebraska.
    Prayers be with you all.

    This is the first I'm hearing about this. I hunted just outside Valentine NE. back in 2008. Beautiful area. Sorry to hear this. Hope everyone stays safe.

    Man, you gotta change the channel. Watching CNN or Fox all day every day is bad for your health.

    I was watching one of the big three, both local and national, last evening and didn't see this. Granted, I don't pay too close attention. Haven't seen it on Yahoo news, my home page, either.

    Sure they do just get yourself a bunch on natives and hippies to protest oil and the networks will come a running!

    It's a bad deal right now. The infrastructure damage is incredible and the timing couldn't be worse for the cow calf people. The videos floating around are insane.

    This could turn out to be the largest devastation our state has ever seen, all of central to eastern Nebraska is affected with large losses. I am aware of of rancher up by Columbus that lost over 200 head of cattle to the quick rising flood waters. The planes and choppers are just now able to get out to assess the damage, they couldn't do much yesterday with the 50+ mph winds. The Spencer dam on the Niobrara river was washed out which then took out the hwy bridge near the town of Niobrara where the Niobrara river empties into the Missouri. Many roads and bridges are gone. When more of the video footage comes out people will be surprised that there wasn't more attention from the national news media.
    We have had our share of tornadoes and flooding but we have never had a situation that affects such a large area like this.
