Cooperative Fundraising Effort for Flood Recovery
Lincoln, Neb. – “We’re moving from the intensity of response to the urgency of recovery,” said Major General Daryl Bohac, Nebraska adjutant general, while addressing the State Emergency Operation Center (SEOC) this morning.
As the flood waters begin to recede and the snow begins to melt, the scope of devastation left behind is becoming clear.
The preliminary estimated statewide public and private impact is more than $642 million. That number is not static. Financial impact is being tracked on the NEMA website. www.nema.nebraska.gov.
