Nebraska Floods Inundate Military Bases, Cut Off Nuclear Plant

According to Reuters, flooding that killed three people in Nebraska and Iowa has cut roads to a nuclear power plant and inundated a significant portion of a major U.S. Air Force base.

The floods, which prompted each state’s governor to declare a state of emergency, are the result of last week’s “bomb cyclone” winter storm.

The floodwater forced the operators of the Cooper nuclear plant, to fly in staff and supplies by helicopter, and covered one-third of that state’s Offutt Air Force Base.
