Historic floods that killed 4 and displaced hundreds force 74 Nebraska cities to issue emergency declarations

The major flooding that left at least four dead in Nebraska and Iowa over the past week is slowly receding in some areas, but rivers likely will be flooded for days more, and additional rain and melting snow are expected to make flooding worse in other parts of the Plains and Midwest.

Nebraska, Iowa and Wisconsin have declared states of emergency.
The flooding in Nebraska has been especially widespread, with Gov. Pete Ricketts calling it the «most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.»
