NEBRASKA CITY – The federal flood levee held back floodwater as the Missouri River crested Sunday in moderate flood stages downstream of Plattsmouth.

A post on the Atchison County Emergency Management page shows an overtopped agricultural levee near Brownville on Sunday.

Fremont County Emergency Management reminds residents that the flood warning continues until Wednesday, July 3. Authorized teams are monitoring the levees.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers posted a clip of a briefing near Bartlett, Iowa.  David Sobczyk of the Corps said the flood is different than 2011 and 2019 in its intensity and that there was time to prepare for the rising water after the rain event in eastern South Dakota.

Nemaha County Emergency Management is urging residents to keep an eye on severe thunderstorms today.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., has portions of south central Nebraska in the enhanced zone for tornadoes. Most of River Country is in the level 2 risk for severe weather. This risk includes early morning thunderstorms.

The Missouri River crested at 31.7 feet, just shy of the moderate flood stage. The river is forecast to fall below flood stage on July 3.

The river crested at 24.3 feet at Nebraska City. It is forecast to drop below moderate flood stage Tuesday morning.

The river crested at 41 feet at Brownville, high enough to impact the Steamboat Trace Trail and boat access roads.

The river crested at Rulo at 23.6 feet, impacting cabins on the Nebraska side and closing the boat ramp.

There was tornado warning in southeast Atchison County Friday, but no damage reported.
