Nebraska: Flooding continues on the Platte River and for portions of the South Platte River

Posted on September 25, 2013 By

The flood warning has been cancelled for the South Platte River across western Lincoln County.  However, flood warnings still remain in effect along the South Platte River from the Colorado state line through southeast Deuel and Keith County, and along the Platte River in eastern Lincoln County.  River forecast points available for reference, forecasts and impacts from the flood waters include:

Although river levels are declining in most areas, those that live along the river should stay informed to the latest observations and forecasts.  As there remains a lot of water still in the river system, elevated levels are expected for both the South Platte and Platte Rivers through the early part of October.  Play it safe – of concern is the amount of debris that will be in the river. This debris will pose a hazard to recreational users of the river.  If you plan on being on any river impacted by the flooding the next several days, please use caution
