Rising Above – Nebraska and Western Iowa’s Historic 2019 Floods


Nebraska and Western Iowa’s Historic 2019 Floods

In 2019, Nebraska and Iowa endured one of the costliest inland floods ever experienced in the United States. Billions of dollars in damage, thousands of homes destroyed, roads closed, levees breached, livestock gone and lives lost. But amid the enormous loss came acts of bravery and kindness that inspired hope and symbolized the strength and resiliency of the heartland.

The BH Media news staff was there documenting this record-breaking catastrophe every step of the way. In honor of the one-year anniversary of the March flooding, Rising Above tells the stories from a historic year.
