NWS issues flash flood emergency in Fremont

Elkhorn River Flood Warning TOP STORY: From too much snow to too much rain?

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood emergency for a number of towns in eastern Nebraska, including Ashland, Yutan, and Schuyler, as the Platte River is expected to rise 4-5 feet. If the Missouri River reaches 45.5 feet - which would threaten the levee protecting the plant - workers will pull the fuel rods that generate power, said Nebraska Public Power District spokesman Mark Becker, who added that there was no danger to the public.

Midland city officials say Emerson Park, Dublin Avenue, West St. Andrews Road, Currie Parkway, Pomranky Road, St. Charles Street and Poseyville Road likely will be under water this weekend.

The NWS reckons there is a 10 percent chance that the river crests at least 38 feet, above the highest ever recorded by the Army Corps of Engineers in July of 1993.

Following an aerial tour of northwest Missouri, Parson said Friday that Missourians in the area should be prepared for a "dramatic rise" in the river in the coming days. The releases could worsen flooding downstream, though the agency was helping with levee monitoring and other flood response measures, and it stopped releases from Fort Randall Dam upstream from Gavins Point.

A weather system is expected to bring mild temperatures and rain across the Grand River watershed on Thursday and Friday which is expected to melt much of the snow pack, resulting in increased runoff into local waterways. The plant plans to use an Alert and shut down the reactor if and when the river reaches 902 feet.

A flood watch remains in effect from late tonight thru Thursday evening for portions of Iowa and Nebraska including northeast Nebraska. Thousands of homes and businesses were still without power Friday in Colorado, mostly in the Denver area, although crews worked throughout the day to restore electricity.
