I went to Lincoln and back yesterday. 220 mile trip one way. Some of the corn looked good but there are a lot of places sitting in water or water has ran across a field and layed the corn down. North of Holdrege had quite a bit of rough areas. Around York looked good. Closer to Lincoln wasn't quite so good.
The Republican river above Harlan County Dam reached a record level beating the previous level set in the major flood of 1935 that prompted a lot of dams to be built in the basin. The dam itself is rising a foot or more per day. The Corps is in a bottleneck. There is already flooding below the dam and all the reservoirs below the dam are full all the way to the flooded Missouri.
