More heavy rain creates flooding concerns in southeast Nebraska

Omaha, NE – The National Weather Service says flooding is possible in parts of southeast Nebraska.

Meteorologist Becky Kern says up to 4.5 inches of rain fell in some areas of southeast Nebraska in the past 24 hours. That's raised flooding concerns along the Big Blue and Nemaha River basins.

Kern says there's less concern for flooding in other areas, such as the Elkhorn River basin. About an inch and a half of rain fell in those areas. She says anyone who lives in a flood-prone area should start preparing for possible flooding.

Flood Warnings continue along parts of the Missouri, Nemaha, and Nishnabotna Rivers.
