‘The great and historical floods due to the overflow of rivers will continue throughout the weekend.’
UNITED STATES, Lincoln.- Parts of the Midwest of the US are now suffering floods, or are preparing to suffer them this weekend, after the “Cyclone Bomb” or “Cyclone Bomb” that swept the area with its hurricane winds.
A combination of the ice left by the natural phenomenon, plus the beginning of spring (when the snow melts), plus the remains of the Cyclone Bomb, has the communities of Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota on high alert.
In some places in the region, rivers are rising to historic levels, making flood barriers unusable, and leading authorities to order evacuations.
“Large and historic floods due to river overflow will continue throughout the weekend, for several points in the Missouri River and Mississippi basins, anyone with interests along these rivers should closely monitor the situation or take action. immediately, “says the National Meteorological Service on his Twitter account.
The governors of Nebraska, Pete Ricketts, and Iowa, Kim Reynolds, declared a state of emergency in their states so that resources can be used to respond to the floods.
The cities of Hornick and Melville, in Iowa, and Plattsmouth, in Nebraska, have been the most affected. The residents of Norfolk, Nebraska, some 24,000 people, were all evacuated because the levees are at their maximum level. A person is missing after his car was swept away by the current.
Major to historic river flooding will continue into the weekend for many points throughout the Missouri and Mississippi River basins. Anyone with interests along impacted rivers should monitor closely/take action.https://t.co/0mAgMs2v3P for the latest forecast river levels. pic.twitter.com/wBZmwiEkJh
