Ice Jams lead to flooding in the state

Flooding is a huge concern right now and the National Weather Service wants people to take the possibility serious.
“We have issued a flood advisory for most of the Elkhorn and Platte Rivers from about Interstate 80 upstream.”
Meteorologist Brian Miller says ice jams are causing some of the problems.
“There are some local ice jams that are occurring up around North Bend and up near the Stanton-Cuming County line near the Pilger area.”
Miller says with the rains, the situation could get worse.
“We are somewhat concerned with the rain, ice jams could cause some flooding along the Elkhorn and Platte Rivers.”
Miller says there is also a lot of ice in the Loup River that is dumping into the Platte.
