Episode Narrative An arctic airmass the first two weeks of February resulted in sub-freezing temperatures, both for daily highs and lows. The cold spell was followed by a rapid warm-up and resulted in ice jams and flooding across south-central Nebraska. Ice jam flooding began on February 20th and lasted until February 27th. Flooding affected the Cedar River, Mud Creek, Sappa Creek, Wood River, Loup River, and the North, South and Middle Loup River branches. Due to the ice jams, water overflowed the banks of the rivers and caused low land flooding. Water flowed over the Burlington Northern railroad tracks and state highway 2 between Ravenna and Sweetwater near the confluence of the Mud Creek and the South Loup River. Water also affected county roads adjacent to the rivers and creeks.
