Floodwaters continued to roll along the South Platte River through Nebraska on Sunday, breaking a 78-year-old record for flood levels at North Platte.
Shawn Jacobs, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the South Platte River crested at 14.2 feet in North Platte at 10 a.m. That broke the record of 14.02 feet set on June 3, 1935.
