Multiple counties across eastern Nebraska have been declared in a state of emergency after a powerful “bomb cyclone” pounded the central United States last week. Heavy rains—combined with melting snow—produced swollen and overflowing rivers.

We have been monitoring the situation closely for some time. Watching the number of affected homes continue to increase, A disaster relief unit and supply trailer have been sent to the Midwest.

More than 15 points throughout Nebraska have reached record-breaking flood levels. About 500 homes have been damaged in one county alone. Hundreds of people are in shelters after floodwaters forced them to flee their homes.

Nearly 300 people in the state have been rescued from the rising waters, with at least one death reported.

Please pray for our disaster relief staff as they serve in Jesus’ Name. Pray that we can quickly provide relief to families who are hurting and in desperate need in the aftermath of this storm.
