Recapping 'the perfect storm'

Article Image Alt Text

The combination of frozen ground, elevation differences, and lots of snow on the ground grew into what has now been named a bomb cyclone back in March, setting the stage for devastating floods across much of Nebraska. Al Dutcher, agricultural Extension climatologist, reviewed those circumstances recently during a seminar at the Nebraska Farm Power show to help people understand the cause of the flooding and what to look for in the future.

“It’s been depressing talking about this, but it can’t be as depressing for the folks that went through the situation in March,” he said. “This was a unique situation. It wasn’t one that we would like to see. Now it’s nothing that hasn’t happened in the past and it’s nothing that’s not going to happen in the future.” Read more on Dutcher's detailed analysis in this week's ANR.
