Flood warning to expire at 10:15 am Thursday

Sandbags protect downtown Clarksville

Gusty winds may continue into Friday across parts of the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes, with mainly light rain or snow showers also possible through Saturday as another weaker cold front passes through.

Following an aerial tour of northwest Missouri, Parson said Friday that Missourians in the area should be prepared for a "dramatic rise" in the river in the coming days. The river is projected to reach 47.1 feet this weekend before it begins to go down. The river is expected to crest at St. Joseph on Tuesday at just over 30 feet.

If you live in a flood prone area, it is a good idea to prepare for the rising water and have a plan to evacuate should you need to.

"Things are moving and changing at a rapid pace", Douglas County Commissioner Mary Ann Borgeson said Friday at a news conference.

The Omaha-Valley Weather Service office said a levee was breached in Nebraska's Dodge County. Floodwalls protect city to 20 feet.

The National Weather Service says the Missouri River at St. Joseph reached almost 26 feet on Saturday, about a foot below what's considered major flooding at the northwest Missouri city.

While Gavins Point is releasing water this spring, Watson said the source of this week's flooding is coming below the dam.

In the aftermath of a "bomb cyclone", Nebraska is experiencing its worst flooding in 50 years, leaving people stranded in need of rescue and claiming one life. The resulting flooding was particularly intense because the heavy rain fell on snow that had not melted yet, said Brian Barjenbruch, the science and operations officer for the weather service in Omaha.

Major ice jams on both rivers near Columbus led to a flash flood emergency Thursday in the area.

The midweek storm crippled parts of Colorado and Wyoming with blizzard conditions.

The plant is in Brownville, about 60 miles south of Omaha, and is already functioning under emergency circumstances.

Pete Ricketts said the state has experienced historic flooding in almost every region.

The storm also spawned at least three tornadoes in MI and in on Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Ricketts also tweeted a list of ways the public can help those afflicted by the catastrophic floods. State police said first-responders say at least 21 homes were damaged, though no injuries have been reported.

Other variables include relocation of water by a dam breach or increased flow from a dam releasing more water upstream.

The auto carrying the men had driven around a road-closed barrier then hit floodwaters, the sheriff's office said.
