...The National Weather Service in North Platte has issued a Flood
Warning for the following rivers in Nebraska...

  North Platte River near Lisco affecting Garden County.

  North Platte River at Lewellen affecting Garden and Keith Counties.

.Recent very heavy rain across Wyoming and the panhandle of Nebraska
is combining with high water from above normal Rocky Mountain snow
melt to create flooding along the North Platte River upstream of
Lake McConaughy. Heavy rainfall the past two days has caused
additional releases from upstream reservoirs and a rise in the
forecast. The latest crest forecast at Lisco is 5.3 feet Sunday
into Monday next week. The latest crest forecast at Lewellen is
8.3 feet next Monday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Safety Message. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where water
covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your
car to cross safely and the road beneath may not be intact. Vehicles
caught in rising waters should be abandoned quickly.

Safety Message. Stay tuned for further developments by listening to
NOAA Weather Radio, radio and television stations or online at
