UNDER WATER – The “bomb cyclone” which pelted the Midwest this month with snow and rain has caused more than $1 billion of flood damage in Nebraska, said Gov. Pete Ricketts Wednesday. Three-fourths of the state’s 93 counties have declared an emergency and cattle losses have topped $400 million, prompting the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation to accept donations for farmers and ranchers in need. Closer to home, residents in northern and northwestern Illinois continue to deal with flooding of their own, keeping fields submerged in time for spring planting.
