Missouri River 2011 Flood Footage in Nebraska and Iowa

We’ve talked extensively about much of the flooding this season. As it winds down, here are two clips from the air of some of the extensive flooding on the Missouri River in Nebraska (June 24) and Iowa (June 30).

 

 

Some of the worst flooding we’ve seen in the U.S. in awhile has occurred this season but it could have been worse. Thanks to a mild (but rainy) May and June in Colorado, the runoff along the Front Range here in Colorado was drawn out and the Poudre River actually had a peak lower than last year. Many reservoirs in the West are full or the highest they’ve been in 10 years.
