* At 1054 am CDT, flooding continues in many areas along and near
streams that are receding. Many County roads still have water on
them due the recent flood event and it will take a while for that
water to drain out. Locations with feeder streams that go into the
Missouri River, the Platte River, the Elkhorn river, the big Blue
River and the Nishnabotna river are the most likely to see water
problems outside of the larger river flooding. This is an
extension and expansion of a previous areal Flood Warning.

* Some locations that could experience flooding include...
Omaha, Lincoln, Norfolk, Beatrice, Falls City, Council Bluffs,
Bellevue, Fremont, Papillion, La Vista, Blair, Nebraska City,
Seward, Crete, Plattsmouth, Ralston, Wayne, Glenwood, Gretna and
Auburn.

* Stay out of flooded areas. Turn around, don't drown when
encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.
