And The Floods Came


Availability: Available

The story of the worst natural disaster in modern Nebraska history is told in “And the Floods Came: Nebraska 2019,” a production of the news unit at NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations.

In a day-by-day, and at times minute-by-minute account of the March flooding, NET News documents the stories of survivors, first responders and local communities. Dramatic video and still photographs capture the aftermath and heartbreak shared by Nebraskans who witnessed dramatic rescues and horrific damage from failed dams and rushing water that carried huge slabs of ice.


“And the Floods Came: Nebraska 2019” explores flooded areas in Boyd and Knox counties where ice smashed through the Spencer dam and caused $4.4 million in damage to roads and bridges in Boyd County alone. It also follows damage along the Loup River system including the communities of St. Edward and Dannebrog. Crews at the Loup Power District diversion dam battled to save that crucial part of the electrical grid.
