This farmstead north of Omaha completely flooded. The house is hard to see due to the trees, but it is right above the smaller grain bins.

Unexcusable they didn’t have the gates open long before in anticipation of the melting snows and spring rains. Even with the excess rains, it shouldn’t have been this bad if they’d managed it better months ago.

Those Billions that Obama and criminals send to other countries should be helping our people..The ones he is helping are enemies of ours and have been for years..Keep our money home Obama..And keep your fool wife home if she wants to feel sorry for someone then let her look around here..Family's here need food and lodging because of her Husband and his communist half wits..

Egypt and Libya are know enemies but yet you all still line their pockets for them to be able to send terrorist to our lands to kill..

But they had to maintain a water level to protect a fish population... on that would not have been there in the first place were it not for the damn dams... Corps of Engineers is gonna have a lot of ‘splainin to do when it’s all said and done and they look back with their 20-20 hindsight...

Your Government at work.......(Or lack thereof)

One would think that the great floods from ‘93 would have taught them something. I remember films of caskets floating from graveyards into the Mississippi.

The MSM is trying to make this flood look like it's the first time.

I know that the Arkansas rice crop is a 3/4 loss this year. So now I wonder how much flooding related crop losses have and are occurring in other states this year.

You’ve all got my prayers.

You’ll need ‘em.

Montana’s running Flood Stage on practically every stream in the state, reservoirs are full to overflowing and that record snow we had last winter hasn’t half started to melt off yet.

This mess we’ve got gets downstream to you all at one time, the flooding you’ve got now is going to look tame.

I’m betting on a whole bunch of early retirements in BLM and Corps of Engineers this summer, if that’s any comfort.

Guess we just get to pay up and shut up. Again.

Has the a**hat who calls himself President declared this a disaster area yet? Has he sent anyone down to check this out and try to help?

I would guess the answer to both questions is NO. Where are all the demwits who screamed about Katrina, why aren't they condemning Bozo the way they did Bush? I know the answer and as always the propaganda org of the left wing, the MSM, is remaining virtually silent on this disaster to the fly over country.

You have turned your vigilance into action.

These are great pictures of a very bad situation. Mis-management by the corp of engineers or the OBUMMER administration.
Is Epply in risk of flooding or the Industrial park area around it and the power plant?

We had a thunderstorm roll though Saturday AM. in Omaha. Left 2 feet of standing water in the streets just 1 block north of the ballpark where the college world series is. Good thing there was no game yesterday.

We have a 3-4 ft plastic covered sand-berm encircling our shop just 10 blocks north of this stadium. Our tool boxes are all on flat bed trailers.

It's all been a lot of work and will be all summer.Lots of nervous people here. Rightly so.

Is this area prone to flooding in t North Omaha by Epply?

Yes. It can be if a levee is breeched or topped. The biggest problem right now in our area, (which is near Epply), is storm sewers backing up. We have many massive pumps operating now just to pump out the lines.

They are hauling in 1,100 loads of "seepage blanket" material to put on the levee on the Council Bluffs side over the next three days.

Everyone thinks humanity can outguess and control mother nature. In doing so we take comfort in assigning blame because it lets us think we have ultimate control.

All that water has to go somewhere. Just about the time the water from the May floods along the lower Mississippi Valley recede, they’re going to get it again. The Missouri empties into the Mississippi just above St. Louis.

Appreciate the prayers for those affected. We’re about a hundred miles east of the river, so we’re not among them. Actually, we’ve been a bit on the dry side here most of the spring. This water is all coming down the Missouri from the Rockies and the northern plains.

Checking in from Gretna Nebraska about 14 miles west of the river.

If you check the date on the Picasa site, you will see that those photos were taken a couple of weeks ago. Someone sent me the link to those photos in an email a few days after they were taken. Since then, the Corps has increased the water release rate from Gavins Point. Also got a bunch of rain here Friday night and are awaiting severe storms and tornadoes in the area this afternoon and evening so even more water will be entering the system. It just seems to be getting worse by the day for all the folks and businesses along the Mo.

This is a slow motion disaster that (not suprisingly) is getting minimal coverage from the MSM. There is alot of anger toward the Corps around here (based on what I hear on local talk radio and see in the local media) because of the feeling that environmental concerns trumped flood control and the protection of peoples assets. Typical attitude that birds and fish are more important than the hicks out here in flyover country.

Keep an eye on this, the story will continue to unfold over the next couple of months and the outcome will likely be VERY bad.

You might want to check out the threads on this for the past few days. There is some concern why it wasn’t better managed. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that large snow falls = large melting runoffs. They knew that would be coming down the river several months ago so had plenty of time to prepare.

Prayers up for everyone affected by these floods out there.

TWC coverage has been OK. They are doing lots of interviews, which give a feel for what people are going through. Packing up and moving out all their belongings...not really knowing what to take and what to leave...some guy left only the stuffed head of a moose that his late wife had shot. A young father was totally in shock. Both he and his sister and their young fams had to move in with the elderly parents. Others are living in friends’ basements. And the worst is yet to come.

God bless all the good folks out there helping each other and practicing the corporal works of mercy in a very real way.

The 1952 FLOOD

When humankind comes together, uniting their resources to reach a common goal, the results can be spectacular.  The people of Omaha, Nebraska, and Council Bluffs, Iowa, demonstrated this in the spring of 1952, when they held back one of the greatest flood ever observed on the Missouri River.
