Life can change in an instant. Residents, business owners, ranchers and farmers across Nebraska, Iowa and surrounding states are currently coping with this reality. Historic flooding has devastated our region, sweeping away homes, buildings, roads and pastures.

Try to imagine that you’re stranded in the ocean, struggling to keep your head above water. Someone finally throws you a life preserver, but you find out it’s full of holes and isn’t going to keep you afloat.
