...CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR FUNNEL CLOUDS...

Current atmospheric conditions over east central and northeast
Nebraska and western Iowa support the development of funnel
clouds. From now until 6 PM...conditions will become favorable
for funnel clouds from east of a line from Ashland to Pender and
north of US 34.

Usually, these funnel clouds can form in the early
stages of developing showers and weak thunderstorms. These
funnels are normally brief, drop only a few hundred feet from the
cloud base, and rarely become a tornado or cause damage. However,
if one is spotted, please immediately report it to the National
Weather Service. If a tornado warning would become necessary, take
appropriate action.

People should monitor the weather situation closely. Listen for
possible warnings, and be prepared to take appropriate action
should severe weather threaten.

The Aftermath of the Flood in Winslow


The aftermath of the recent flooding took a very definite toll on the community of Winslow, NE. People have been cleaning up their property, but some may not be able to return to their homes to live. The small community may suffer more than anyone can realize. All photos credit of Denise Gilliland, Editor and Chief/Kat Country Hub.

The Missouri River by Decatur is Still Running High


We went for a drive last Saturday around Burt County. We decided to see how high the Missouri River is. It is still running high as can be seen in the photos I took. I assume they are still letting water out at Gavin’s Point. This has been such a tragic year for so many people who have lost so much due to the widespread flooding. One never knows what Mother Nature has in store. All photos credit of Denise Gilliland, Editor and Chief/Kat Country Hub.
