Northeast Nebraska hit hard by flooding

(KTIV) – Several northeast Nebraska communities were impacted hard by the severe weather and flooding on Wednesday.

For a time this morning, a portion of Wakefield was reduced to one lane as floodwaters went over the highway.

Flooding from the Logan Creek, in Oakland, Nebraska, has flooded the city park and campground.

Signs and cones lined park entrances keeping people out of the area.

Parts of Oakland are also cut off by floodwaters.

In Pender, Nebraska, the Logan Creek has risen out its banks.

Highway 9 is now closed.

It’s one of the many roadways in northeast Nebraska that have been shut down by high water.

A state worker at the scene told KTIV crews workers are trying to break up ice jams to bring down the level of rivers and streams so roads can re-open.
