Eastern Nebraska Devastated by Storm
March 20, 2019
While Sidney and Cheyenne County fared pretty well during last week's blizzard, its affects on the state have been devastating.
With many of the state's rivers already being watched for flooding due to the buildup of ice, the storm's added moisture and wind resulted in severe flooding across nearly two-thirds of the state.
As of Monday, 65 of the state's counties had declared emergencies due to flooding, with more than 70 towns or cities affected.
Some, like Niobrara, no longer exist. Others, including Freemont, were cut off from the outside by flood waters surrounding their towns.
