We have a lot of people with questions on the flooding and wanting to help. Here is what we received from Keith Glewen, the Extension Educator with the Eastern Nebraska Research & Extension Center. "While flood waters are receding the scars of this catastrophic event are evident across many areas of Nebraska. Extension faculty and staff are engaged in an "all Hands on deck" effort to address the recovery. My fellow Educators and Specialists now and in future days, weeks and months will be posting resources at the following website: https://flood.unl.edu/."

This website has a lot of information; donations, volunteering, resources, etc. Please check out this website and share it with everyone, anyone who may have been effected by this event.

Here is some information on how to help and what is needed. Go to this link for more information.
