Historic Floods in Nebraska Cause Over $1 Billion in Damage — Friday Five

Historic Floods in Nebraska Cause Over $1 Billion in Damage — Friday Five
Friday Five - March 22, 2019

A historic week for Nebraska will result in months of recovery from damage caused by floodwaters. In this week’s edition of Friday Five, Bryce and Alex look back to last week when Nebraska’s most widespread natural disaster was just beginning. Since then, over 79 percent of Nebraska has declared an emergency. On Thursday, President Donald Trump approved Nebraska’s request for federal disaster assistance.

If you can help fellow Nebraskans, consider donating to one of a few agriculture groups that have set up relief funds designed to aid farmers, ranchers and rural communities.

  • Nebraska Farm Bureau (NEFB.org)
  • Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association (NebraskaCattlemen.org)
  • Nebraska FFA Foundation (NEFFAFoundation.org)
  • #NebraskaStrong Drive for Flood Relief on FRIDAY (Call 1-844-278-8555)
