Missouri River at Omaha Surpasses Level Set in Flood of 1993

...MISSOURI RIVER STAGE AT OMAHA SURPASSES STAGE SET IN 1993 FLOOD...

THE RIVER STAGE ON THE MISSOURI RIVER AT OMAHA HAS SURPASSED THE
FLOOD CREST THAT WAS SET IN THE 1993 FLOOD. THE CREST IN 1993 AT
OMAHA WAS 30.26 FEET. THE RIVER CURRENTLY IS AROUND 30.4 FEET. THE
CURRENT RIVER LEVEL IS THE 2ND HIGHEST ON RECORD AT OMAHA...BEHIND
THE RECORD OF 40.2 FEET SET BACK IN 1952. RELEASES FROM GAVINS
POINT DAM IN NORTHEAST NEBRASKA HAVE REACHED 140 KCFS...AND ARE
FORECAST TO INCREASE TO 150 KCFS THROUGH NEXT WEEK AND REMAIN AT
THAT LEVEL FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. THIS WILL RESULT IN A CREST AT OMAHA
POSSIBLY AS HIGH AS 36 FEET...ALTHOUGH THAT VALUE IS SUBJECT TO
CHANGE BASED ON RELEASES FROM UPSTREAM RESERVOIRS.
