New Missouri River level records set at Brownville

BROWNVILLE – The road to the “Spirit of Brownville” and a nearby house were submerged in water Sunday afternoon, but the rest of the southeast Nebraska town seems to be spared by flooding from the Missouri River.

On Sunday, the river level was at 45.1 feet (11.1 feet above flood stage). That breaks the previous record of 44.8 feet set in June 2011.

Bob Davis, an area business owner from Stella, took a boat ride four to five miles along the river to assess the record setting river levels.
