NebraskaFollowing recent storm across the Midwest, numerous communities in Nebraska are experiencing severe flooding, and some water systems have been compromised. Convoy of Hope is currently sending 80,000 lbs. of bottled water to aid those affected.
The severe flooding in Nebraska and surrounding areas is partially due to the “bomb cyclone” that moved through the Midwest. Heavy rains, snowmelt, and ice jams in the river systems have all contributed to the severity of the flooding. The Convoy of Hope Disaster Services team is coordinating with churches and emergency management officials on how to best coordinate relief.
