Nebraska's sixth largest city has become "an island" amid historic flooding in parts of the Midwest that has left one man dead, forced a National Weather Service office to evacuate and may force a nuclear power plant to shut down out of caution.
Fremont, Nebraska, lies about 40 miles northeast of Omaha and is home to more than 26,000 residents. As of Friday afternoon, flooded roadways coming in and out of the city were closed, leaving the city cut off, the Fremont Tribune reported.
“We are asking people to stay out of the area. We are getting a lot of sightseers, and it’s impeding crew from getting sandbags and fill (material) to where we need to go,” Lottie Mitchell, a spokeswoman for the city, told the Omaha World-Herald.
