In what weathermen are calling “historic” flooding, those along the Missouri, Elkhorn and Platte Rivers are enduring loss of homes, productivity and livestock.

In what weathermen are calling “historic” flooding, those along the Missouri, Elkhorn and Platte Rivers are enduring loss of homes, productivity and livestock. According to Reuters, the end isn’t coming anytime soon.

“We’re looking at widespread flooding that continues until at least early next week in the Plains and Midwest region,” Marc Chenard with the National Weather Service told Reuters Sunday. Additional cities in Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska are expected to be evacuated this week.

Last week Governor Pete Ricketts declared a statewide emergency for Nebraska citizens. So far, two people have died in the floodwaters.

In addition, row crop farmers are facing the possibility of losing their livelihood for the season. Planting is around the corner and water levels don’t look to subside anytime soon. And even when they do, mud means more delays for farmers.

Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting in touch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "MOORE LOAN COMPANY". was a god sent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to of Robbinson Moore (mooreloancompany@yahoo.com)..

  I am very impressed by the data used in this article as well as the images. I feel that this headline and reporting may alert readers to potential ongoing and worsening local crises seen today as flooding. Snowmelt may be accelerated if warm weather causes faster than average melt. In addition, more rain could increase and prolong the crisis. Reprecussions of 2019 winter weather like infrastructure damage, agricultural damage could decrease economic growth, raise the cost of commodities and reduce shipment of goods.
