Historic Missouri River Flooding

Posted: 18 Mar 2019 03:43 PM

The featured image is courtesy of @CopernicusEU showing a dramatic view of the historic flooding over eastern Nebraska and western Iowa using data from Sentinel 2 satellite. For the gauge at Plattsmouth, Nebraska, the Missouri River is four feet above the previous record stage. The ongoing flooding situation is being helped by mostly dry weather this week, but there is still plenty of snow to melt yet over areas further north.

Good = 5
Bad = 0
