Nebraska Lawmakers Discuss Flooding In The State

Jul 11, 2019 | ,

(KVHT) – As flooding forces hundreds in Nebraska to evacuate, lawmakers in Washington are providing their assessment of the situation. Both Representative Adrian Smith and Senator Deb Fischer said Thursday that the flooding caused “devastation” in the middle of a difficult year for the state of Nebraska. They said they are waiting to hear from Governor Pete Ricketts before pursuing federal action. Officials have not yet put a dollar amount on the most recent flood damage. More than 300 people evacuated homes and hotels in central Nebraska this week due to the flooding. Shelters were opened up at the University of Nebraska-Kearney to assist the displaced individuals.
