And The Floods Came Nebraska 2019
Air Date: 09/09/2019
The impact of severe weather for several days in March in Nebraska will last for years. Flooding swept across the eastern half of the state, leaving hundreds homeless and destroying homes, businesses, farms, ranches and roads. Our news team was in the fields, beside the rivers and alongside the many relief workers and volunteers who were working to help the state recover and rebuild after the flood, telling their stories and the story of this difficult time for the state.
“Nebraska Floods” is a collection of our reporting on the efforts by the government, relief agencies, volunteers and your neighbors to reconstruct communities. These stories have been broadcast on Nebraska Public Media, and a number of them on NPR, the PBS NewsHour and other national programs as well. Check back often and follow the journey with us as Nebraska prepares for life after the flood of 2019.
