Heavy rains and rapidly melting snow has caused flooding in eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa, even to the point of shutting down major roadways.
The threat of flooding along the Missouri River and other streams forced authorities to close stretches of Interstates 29 and 680 in western Iowa. I-680 is closed at 30th Street in Omaha, over the Missouri River and to the I-29 interchange just west of Crescent. I-680 is also closed between Loveland and Minden.
Interstate 29 has been closed from Missouri Valley to Council Bluffs and Highway 30 is closed from Missouri Valley northeast to Dunlap. Those living in Missouri Valley can get to Omaha by taking Highway 30 through Blair.
On the Nebraska side of the Missouri River there are a number of highway closures including: a mile stretch of Highway 92 west from Highway 77 and again from David City to Osceola, Highway 66 north of Ashland from Memphis to Highway 77, Highway 30 from Arlington to Highway 31 south of Kennard, Ames to North Bend and 275 West Point to just south of Winslow. John J. Pershing Drive is also closed from Dick Colins Road north to Ponca Road.
