Nebraska hit with worst flooding in 50 years

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Nebraska is dealing with the worst flooding its seen in 50 years after a powerful, late-winter 'bomb cyclone' storm pushed into the U.S. Midwest.

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts issued an emergency declaration for the state, citing forecasts of up to 2 feet (0.61 m) of snow and high winds that are expected to make travel "difficult to impossible" on roads.

"Nebraskans should watch the forecast closely in the coming days and be prepared for severe weather events in conjunction with potential historic flooding," Ricketts said in the declaration.

"As Nebraskans know, conditions can change quickly, and everyone needs to be prepared." "Widespread and extremely dangerous flooding will continue today and tonight," the National Weather Service office in Omaha, Nebraska, said on Friday in a statement.

Many streams will see moderate to major flooding through the weekend, the service said, and flooding along the Missouri River will continue into next week.

Meteorologists referred to the storm as a "bomb cyclone," a winter hurricane that forms when the barometric pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours.
