NEBRASKA CITY – The Missouri River exceeded moderate flood stage at Nebraska City Thursday morning.
Riverview Marina and the public dock operated by Heartland Ag are flooded and the river is now flowing against the federal levee on the Iowa side.
Flood waters have covered the dock area and are believed to be six inches to a foot deep in the parking lot.
Central Avenue near the dock is impassable.
The federal levee at the Highway 2 pinch point for the Missouri River is helping to protect Highway 2 better than it did in 2011. Water is up to the base of the levee.
A crest of 26.2 feet is forecast, which is three feet higher than anything experienced last year. Water is expected to top the levee at 27 feet.
