Nebraska and Iowa Fleet: Before and after, satellite imagery shows rivers swallowing cities



Upstream of Scribner, Nebraska, on the Elkhorn River, a high water level measured its second highest crest: 17.65 feet (17.65 feet). The flood gauge just downstream of the city stopped Wednesday when minor flooding occurred. It could be affected by ice floes.
The pictures show how the Elkhorn temporarily turned the town of Scribner into an island. For satellite images, the only connection for the nearly 900 inhabitants of the city seems to be Highway 275.

Normally, the Logan Creek Dredge, the river that flows into the Elkhorn River, is barely visible. It is also far beyond its usual shore.

In Waterloo, Nebraska, the Elkhorn River downstream increased to 24.64 feet, the highest ever measured.
He surpassed the previous record of 1
962 by more than 5 feet. The Platte River (pictured left) was also historically located further upstream in Leshara, Nebraska.

How much water flowed in the Platte River can be seen from how far it crosses its shores between North Bend and Fremont, Nebraska.

The 28,000 inhabitants of Fremont were cut off during the height of the flood. While no injuries were reported, the authorities carried out bailouts throughout the city.

In Platte, Ashland, Nebraska also recorded record flooding. The river there – 24.35 feet on Saturday – was one meter higher than ever recorded before.

The river swelled so high that it cut through farmland and turned the highest points into islands.

Offutt Air Force Base sits along the Missouri River south of Omaha, Nebarska. Satellite imagery from Planet Labs Inc. shows much of the base in the floods of the Missouri River.

Flooding has made it into some 30 buildings on the base and nine planes have been evacuated due to flooding. They contained eight variations of a C135 and an E4B, an advanced Air Force command known as the Doomsday Airplane.

One of the most dramatic images shows the mouth of the Platte River, where he meets near La Platte on the Missouri, Nebraska.

The Sheriff Office in Sarpy County said it was still not safe enough to leave residents of the Hanson and Chris Lakes regions behind in their homes. A flood meter directly on the Missouri River was 40.62 feet on Saturday, over 4 feet above the historic ridge.
