Short-term Responses

King Lake, Nebraska – October 3-16, 2021

The community of King Lake, NE and surrounding areas were devastated by historic flooding in March 2019. Record snowfall had accumulated across the state between January and March, with record cold temperatures persisting in February. This resulted in the major river systems in Nebraska remaining covered by ice and snow when rapid temperature changes caused accelerated thawing to occur in March.

BDM will partner with the King’s Garden and Omaha Rapid Response to help families affected by this historic flooding who have been unable to recover over 2 ½ years later.
