Well nebraskans your water found it’s way to Kansas stay safe big 8 bros
This is nuts with all the Nebraska flooding. Like a 500yr event?
This thread is sobering and terrifying, happening now.
My brothers house is fucked here in Custer county and we also had 23 calves in our feedlot drown last night. Fucken shit definitely hits home
Last flood like this in our area of this caliber was the early 50s iirc the elders saying
Same scenario though. Ground was still frozen and rapid snowmelt totally fucked everything up. Amount of livestock dying in my area is unreal though
Wish I was wrong
This is my brothers house
Top photo is his basement which is about 10 feet under the house
We shut the power off after we figured we were losing the battle pumping. Unfortunately an older guy that lives by him had his house burn on top of getting flooded
Damn oldberg Sorry to hear that man.
It’s the whole state being affected not just myself personally. I feel for everyone that is having their homes fucked up by this nonsense
T’s and P’s oldberg
So sorry oldberg and others. Stay safe. All this shit can be replaced
Chased a few down today. Was in good position on both of the tornado warned storms NNE of Birmingham but had to bail to get back to city to pick up my wife from work.
those radar screenshots tho
oldberg how you holding up today buddy?
What kind of temperature jump are we talking about that caused the snow to melt before the ground could thaw? Also I'm geographically impaired, what parts of Nebraska is this happening in?
Sounds and looks horrible
We had a stretch of a month of below freezing temps. Lots of places had 6+ inches of snow on the ground. All that disappeared in about 24 hours. 1-3 inches of rain did most of it. It's about all of Central Nebraska clear east to where everything dumps into the big rivers.
Once in a lifetime type of shit.
We had some abnormally high snowfall this winter - upwards of 50"+ throughout most of the state. And the frigid cold weather stuck around a lot longer than normal this year. Then this week the temps jumped up to the 50's and there was a fairly large rainfall that accompanied it. This caused all shit to break loose. Most of the areas affected are central and northeastern parts of the state.
Oh and there's a blizzard that dropped over a foot of snow and had hurricane winds on the western end of the state.
Nebraska was fucking wild this week.
Rain on top of frozen soil = complete runoff with no absorption. Compounded by that runoff going into frozen rivers, so ice jams caused even more flooding.
Is Oldberg the only Husk poster affected?
There are quite a few guys who still have family living in towns that were hit hard
I also had to take up Korean yard shitting to conserve water.
My town was fortunate unless you lived near the river.
My buddy was able to go back out last night and luckily his house had not gone swimming yet. The bank is now about 3-4 feet from his back windows.
This seems thread worthy especially if any posters directly impacted lack flood insurance
Got pics of a family member's business completely under water. Tight.
Fuck, that's awful. Sorry man.
I'm guessing a huge majority of the state doesn't have flood insurance since something like this has never really happened in anyone's lifetime
Don't want to go into too many specifics but my Dad works there now. Old man's got his work cut out for him but they'll be fine I'm sure. People impacted seem to be taking it pretty well actually. Like, this is a shit sandwich but as long as people are ok we'll deal.
They'll get by. Happened to my hometown a few years ago. Areas flooded that were not considered a floodplain thus no one had flood insurance. They were able to rebuild. Absolutely horrible situation.
I work insurance so if there's any questions I can answer or be of any help, PM me
Thanks brother. The people I really feel for are people who are in the swing of calving. Especially if they're out to pasture. Cattlemen relatives haven't really started that yet so they're alright but there's a bunch of people who are having a really tough time getting to their calves and/or like berg, calves are dying like crazy. That's devastating.
Wife and I are not heading to Lyons tonight, but will try to make it up north tomorrow to check on her parents. Sounds like everything around the Fremont area is totally fucked, which is the way we take to West Point. Her brother lives in Sutton and got hammered yesterday by snow.
West Point also fucked, apparently. Saw videos of a corn field that looked like a full on river yesterday.
Have some family friends that have a house on Woodcliff Lake and they were evacuated at around 3am yesterday. Then there was a flood emergency declared there last night so I think they are probably in for some shit. This just sucks.
You’re right. BIL just updated us in the group chat.
Also read highway 2 is closed west of GI Cornfed Buffalo and they're evacuating people
Wife told me she read that a farmer died yesterday trying to help out some stranded people. Haven't seen verification.
Yeah. Near Columbus.
Valley is being evacuated now.
This is probably the most heavily traveled road in the state besides interstates.
