How Severe Is the Flooding in Nebraska?
A dike has broken west of Omaha and the NWS office there has been evacuated, and its radar turned off, until further notice. This is especially unfortunate because there is no overlapping radar coverage in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.
Fortunately, the weather looks relatively calm the next few days.
Addition: here is a photo of the mess. The NWS office is in the center.
The NWS building is brown. The radar is the white ball. At right, with the white dome, is a rawinsonde (weather balloon) launch facility. The loss of radar and weather balloon data could cause issues if a major storm should present itself.
