Newly Released Footage Shows Destruction After Severe Flooding in Nebraska

Two months after floods devastated cities in Nebraska, an Omaha highway reopened on May 20 after $2.2 million worth of repairs, the Omaha World Herald reported.

Across the state, floods damaged infrastructure, hampering commerce and travel. In early May, sections of Interstate 29, a highway that traces the Nebraska-Iowa border, reopened after rebuilding, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.

Newly released video shows the extent of the flooding damage in March. The footage shows flooded streets in Venice and Fremont, as well as cracked and eroded highways. Credit: Nebraska Department of Transportation via Storyful
