Flood records set in 17 Nebraska locations

Flood records set in 17 Nebraska locations

Flooding has reached record levels at 17 locations across Nebraska. The state's emergency management agency says more record crests are expected in various rivers by Tuesday. Nebraska has had much of the worst of the late-winter flooding that's been seen across the Midwest. Hundreds of homes are damaged and the state says 660 people are staying in shelters. The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency says the Missouri River is expected to crest Sunday at 41 feet (12.5 meters) in Plattsmouth - 4 feet (1.22 meters) above the record set in 2011. Serious flooding there is expected to continue through next weekend. Crest records also were set along the Platte and Elkhorn rivers. The Elkhorn reached 24.6 feet (7.5 meters) Saturday in Waterloo, breaking the 1962 record by 5 1/2 feet (1.68 meters). Nearly 300 people have been rescued from high water across the state. At least one person has died in floodwaters in the state. A second death from flooding was reported in Iowa.

Residents flee flooded homes in Nebraska

Flooding in Nebraska has badly damaged up to 500 houses in one county alone. Greg London of the Sarpy County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that one levee broke Thursday along the Platte River, and another broke Saturday. He estimates that up to 400 houses and cabins in the area known as Hanson's Lake are damaged, including many that are completely submerged. Another 100 or so homes are damaged elsewhere in the county. Stranded residents in Fremont were being flown out by volunteer pilots, who brought them to safe, dry land in Omaha on Sunday. In nearby Bellevue, some residents without flood insurance were left trying to figure out how to pick up from damaged homes.

New Zealand police say gunman resisted arrest

New Zealand police say gunman resisted arrest

New Zealand police commissioner Mike Bush says authorities have no information about any imminent threats in the country but everyone should continue to be vigilant in the wake of mass shootings at two mosques. Bush told a news conference that the investigation into Friday's attacks that killed at least 49 was wide ranging and ongoing. When asked if they believed the same person was responsible for both attacks, he said he couldn't go into details. Brenton Tarrant, a 28-year-old man, has been arrested and charged with murder. He appeared in court earlier Saturday. Bush said it took 36 minutes from the first attack to the suspect's arrest. He said the man was not willing to be arrested and had what were believed to be explosive devices in his vehicle. The gunman posted a 74-page manifesto on social media in which he identified himself as Tarrant and said he was a 28-year-old Australian and white supremacist who was out to avenge attacks in Europe perpetrated by Muslims. Christchurch Hospital chief Greg Robertson says seven of the 48 gunshot victims admitted after Friday's mosque shootings in have been discharged. Roberson says a 4-year-old girl who has been transferred to an Auckland hospital in critical condition and 11 patients who remain in Christchurch are also critically wounded.
