The Omaha Posse has been posting up photos of the flooding in the Omaha-Council Bluffs area. I am starting this thread for members to post photos of flooding in all parts of the Mid West such as the Dakotas and Minnesota.


Here is a small lake near the Platte River north of Oreapolis. Water is receding. UP and BNSF crews working on the 2 bridges. Many detours UP over the BN.

Drove down towards Pacific Jct. Iowa. Roads to PJ are closed to sightseers. Tracks on the north entrance(Council Bluffs Sub) not being used. But a ballast train on east end on main line. First pic from Hwy 34 east of I29 looking south, normally a field of crops of some sort. Pacific Jct town just right of center, in the distance. Hwy 34 west of I29 and I29 south closed. Pic 2. Ballast train from old Hwy 34 bridge on east side PJ and last one looking NW toward PJ from old 34 on south side. Water has receded some.
