Historic, widespread flooding will continue through May

Historic flooding is expected to continue through May.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the spring flood outlook is not good for those already devastated by flooding in the Midwest.

NOAA officials say the outlook calls for nearly two-thirds of the lower 48 states to face an elevated risk of flooding through May.

With the potential for major to moderate flooding in 25 states across the Great Plains, Midwest and down through the Mississippi River Valley.

The warning comes amid record flooding triggered by a sudden warm-up and heavy rains earlier this month brought on by the “bomb cyclone.”
