Ricketts Tours Flood Damage

NORFOLK – Governor Pete Ricketts visited Norfolk on his tour across Eastern Nebraska to survey the flood damage in around half the state.

Ricketts, along with officials from The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency, the National Guard and state lawmakers, among others, gathered for a news conference before a ground tour of the area.

During the conference, the National Guard confirmed the rescue of 34 people and seven dogs by air Thursday night.

They say the river system in the area will continue to be an issue as water flows toward the southeast corner of the state.
