Weather Service meteorologist Al Pietrycha says the Missouri River is expected to reach major flood stage this weekend after reaching a record crest upstream in Brownville, Nebraska.

A flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service includes Valley, Waterloo and King Lake in Nebraska until 10:15 a.m. CDT. Flooding there is due to rivers like the Elkhorn rising to near-record levels and breaching levees in some spots.

The Nebraska Public Power District declared an "unusual event" at its Cooper Nuclear Station power plant on Friday, with the possibility of flooding along the Missouri River. On Tuesday, the company began emergency preparations, including sandbagging and barricading facilities. "Eventually as we head into next week, we should see more and more of the rivers start to recede below flood stage".

Typically, when the Moreau River reaches 20 feet, portions of Buffalo Road will be closed.
