Flood­wa­ters rise in Midwest af­ter heavy rain, snow

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Author­i­ties were us­ing boats and large ve­hi­cles on Satur­day to res­cue and evac­u­ate res­i­dents in parts of the Midwest where a re­cent del­uge of rain­wa­ter and snowmelt was sent pour­ing over frozen ground, over­whelm­ing creeks and rivers, and killing at least one per­son.

Res­cue ef­forts in eastern Ne­braska were ham­pered by re­ports of levee breaches and washouts of bridges and roads, in­clud­ing part of Ne­braska High­way 92, lead­ing in and out of south­west Omaha.

The flood­ing fol­lowed days of snow and rain that swept through the West and Midwest.
