Record snowfall and bitter cold temperatures have some people wondering if there’s a chance of more flooding like what was seen in 2019.

But the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency says while there has been a lot of snow, the state is nowhere near the conditions that led to the 2019 flooding.

They say areas north of Nebraska, along the Missouri River, had comparatively dry winters, meaning they aren’t expected to contribute much runoff.

"Stream flows in the Missouri are down quite a bit from where they were at in 2019, so we think we have lots of capacity," NEMA Assistant Director Bryan Tuma said. "And we don't expect a lot of moisture or runoff."

But as always, everyone is urged to be prepared. Experts say there will always be a flood risk for low-lying areas of Nebraska.
