"This morning I was notified that there was a breach up at Mills County, so we now have water running down from that breach area", said Mike Creselius, Fremont County Emergency Manager. As of Saturday evening, the river stood at just under 25 feet, which is considered moderate flooding.

Since issuing that statement, the Weather Service itself had to evacuate due to a dike failure on the Platte River.

As rivers and creeks in flooded eastern Nebraska and western Iowa crest Saturday, officials have begun looking downstream at likely flooding further south along the Missouri River. The road may have washed away or you could be washed away from flood waters.

A flood alert has been issued for Sheffield, as heavy rain drenches the city.

The National Weather Service expects the Missouri River to reach 30.1 feet in St. Joseph early next week and hold at near record levels until the middle of next week, when it is expected to begin to slowly recede.

Arthur said that Jack's had additional customers because the water had closed some other bars and restaurants - and that the flooding was the main topic of conversation.

The storm also significantly increased spring flood worries in the Red River Valley in the Upper Midwest, where the neighboring cities of Fargo, North Dakota, and Moorhead, Minnesota, experienced a record flood 10 years ago.

The river is forecast to fall below flood stage by Thursday afternoon.

According to the NWS, "the low-pressure system which brought blizzard conditions, heavy rainfall, and severe weather to parts of the Plains and Midwest this week has pushed well into Canada this morning". South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem opened that state's emergency operations center and said an emergency declaration was being prepared.

Rescues and evacuations are continuing throughout impacted areas and the rising Missouri River in the town of Brownville, Nebraska, meant officials were preparing to shut down the Cooper Nuclear Power Station, according to a press release.

Flooding has also made several highways in Wisconsin unpassable. State police said first-responders say at least 21 homes were damaged, though no injuries have been reported.

The vehicle carrying the men had driven around a road-closed barrier then hit floodwaters, the sheriff's office said. Even if they are well back from a known water source, the location might be the last, best spot to turn around.
