Governor Pete Ricketts declared emergencies in 74 cities, 65 counties and four tribal areas. More than 2,600 locals were urged to evacuate on Friday.
‘This is the largest widespread amount of flooding we’ve had in the last half-century,’ Ricketts said.
Meanwhile, a Nebraska-native, Blaire DeBoer’s prayer for ranchers during the devastating Nebraska floods is winning the Internet.
DeBoer posted on her Facebook:
“This morning I put on a shirt that simply says “God Bless the Rancher.” I bought it in 2017 during the wildfires that swept through Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas destroying hundreds of thousands of acres and killing any livestock in its path and the proceeds for the shirt went to help wildfire victims. I’ve worn this shirt a lot since then. Today, it carries more weight to it than a piece of clothing should…God, bless the rancher.”
“God, be with the rancher in Nebraska who swung open gates and drove away helplessly so his cattle could escape the rising waters.”
“God, comfort the rancher who rushed to load as many steers as possible before having to leave the last 100 to drown because he couldn’t get to them in time.”
“God, sustain the rancher who threw calves into hay lofts and enclosed trailers to save them from bitter cold and because he knew saving the calves would be easier than saving their mamas.”
“God, console the rancher who has watched his barns and buildings and equipment get picked up and carried away by rushing water.”
“God, carry the rancher who takes his tractor to go help his neighbor and himself gets washed away by a collapsed bridge, losing his life in the tide.”
“God, help the rancher that has to move his family to higher ground but watches in despair as his cows look to him for help. God, be with, comfort, sustain, console, and carry the rancher. God, bless the rancher. Amen.”
