I-29 remains open despite MO River flooding
09/19/2019

 OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Missouri River continues to rise and flood mostly rural land in Nebraska and Iowa, but Interstate 29 remains open near Omaha.
 
Iowa Transportation Department officials expect to have to close parts of I-29 at some point during this week's flooding.
 
The river is expected to crest Saturday near Omaha after overnight rains dropped 1-to-3 inches in the area.
 
The highway remained open Thursday morning although several onramps were closed in southwest Iowa.
 
The lower Missouri River is flooding in Nebraska and Iowa this week because exceptionally heavy rains fell last week in Montana, North and South Dakota and Nebraska.
 
Officials don't expect the floodwaters to cause significant damage to communities. But many levees remain damaged from severe flooding in the spring.
 
The floodwaters broke through two levees Wednesday in a rural area northeast of Omaha.
