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