Nebraska/Iowa floods

Be aware if you are planning on traveling though either state this summer many roads and bridges are washed out. It is going to take a long time to fix all this. I don't have a complete list but I know that many campgrounds are also destroyed. Double check your routes before you get there and find out you have to go a hundred of miles out of the way. I know Hy 281 is a very popular north south route to get to South Dakota. A dam broke so that is not passable anymore. If you travel that way to Sturgis you have to find a another way. I-29 in Iowa is now under water. We still don't know the extent of the damage. Just yesterday another bridge collapsed on Hy 275 in Nebraska.

I live in North Eastern Nebraska while I was not effected many of my friends and family are. I have a friend staying with me who lost everything. My dad is in a hotel. Not allowed to go home. I'm afraid he lost everything also. Whole towns had to be evacuated and were under water. Some still are.

Thanks for the update. We will have to recheck our plans for later this summer as we thought we might be in the area.
