  1. Levee failures south of Omaha ongoing, mandatory evacs by 5pm today. Still rising around Omaha...I'm extremely concerned about the levees around Omaha/Council Bluffs with police patrolling to keep people off them now. New picture of formerly Spencer Dam...

    Spring 2019 Flooding Thread

    That's all there is left of the Spencer Dam in north-central Nebraska. There's gonna be a big lawsuit over this coming. Someone in 2010 recorded it leaking badly and talked about maintenance being deferred. https://youtu.be/VRP3gFtjem8

    Spring 2019 Flooding Thread

    It's been awful watching my hometown area have all this unprecedented flooding unfold so fast.
  5. Valley, NE being evacuated. Basically anyone living near I-29 and Missouri River south of Omaha being told to evacuate, levees topping. Dam that failed running unchecked into Missouri River north of Omaha along with the gavins point dam increases coming.
  6. ****. Just south of Omaha and Council Bluffs. Missouri River breaking records Edit: NWS confirms levees on both sides of the Missouri River by Plattsmouth are being overtopped. Gavins point dam increase still on the way as far as I know....
  7. Thanks man. I hope the levees hold up in Council Bluffs, that's my biggest worry right now (hometown and half my family and most friends live there) since it could put most of the town underwater if one or more burst. I'm not confident they've strengthened them properly after the 2011 floods. Insane video of boulders of ice all over the road. Unsure exactly where in Nebraska https://www.facebook.com/osborneearthmoving/videos/2267573233292880/
  8. Flash flood emergency for Platte River due to a major ice jam breaking up, Fremont, Ashland and other cities along it being told to evacuate ASAP. 4-5 foot wall of water. Missouri River going to be near record crest by tomorrow near Omaha. I-29 and 680 closed in/north of Council Bluffs. Bridge likely gone near the Spencer dam and some reports the dam is gone too. Feel so bad for friends and family over there.

Interstate 680 shutdown. Friends just outside Logan, IA are basically landlocked. Missouri Valley (town) evacuated and more.

    Haven't experienced a blizzard like this since the December 2009 one in Des Moines.

    Supposedly reports of 5+ inches already where I'm at. It started snowing about 3 hours ago...

    Decided to come to Omaha area for this. Classic blizzard going on, barely see more than half a block

    Gonna be interesting how quickly it will transition to snow. Being on the edge of that razor sucks haha

    Winter Storm? Jan 18-19th, 2019

    Wouldn't be the first time this snow season...

    December 2018 General Discussion

    Visited family near Omaha this weekend and woke up to a nice surprise of 4-6" of wet concrete. Heavy band overnight was supposed to be south near the NE/MO/IA border.
  18. This would make up for the last storm literally going around Des Moines. I highly doubt this'll happen but a man can hope! and then be crushed again

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    Definitely increasing around/over Osceola, IA. Northern edge is retreating south a little but southern edge picking up

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    The knife guess was too accurate

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    I've thrown my hands up at guessing for Des Moines with this extreme cutoff. 2" or 20"?

    Nov. 25th-26th Midwest Snowstorm Potential

    Slice a knife across Des Moines with these totals each run... I'll assume the worst, wouldn't take much going north or south to drastically change amounts IMBY at this rate.

    July 19-20 Severe Weather

    Report finalized and no major changes to the preliminary ratings. Rotation that went right over my place before touchdown confirmed EF0. I'm ok with that
  25. Yikes. Spotter confirmed 80mph gusts and baseballs.
