(Audio) Update On Flooding In Dodge County-Scribner Floodgates Now Open

(Audio) Update On Flooding In Dodge County-Scribner Floodgates Now Open
Water seeps into the west side of town with sandbags lining the intersection of Ridge Road and Military Avenue in Fremont, Neb., on Saturday, March 16, 2019. The flooding followed days of snow and rain — record-setting, in some places — that swept through the West and Midwest. (Kent Sievers/Omaha World-Herald via AP)

Flooding concerns continue in Dodge County, especially after  levees were breached resulting in evacuations in North Bend, Winslow, Inglewood and  parts of Fremont south of the railroad tracks.  There’s word the flood gates have now been opened at Scribner. You can get from Scribner to the 275/91 junction and on  to Snyder.  But Highway 275 is still closed and impassable to West Point.  Please do not attempt this route.



All major roads in and out of Fremont remained closed Sunday morning.  Floodgates at Scribner may be removed today.
