Midwest Struck By 'Biblical Flooding' After Bomb Cyclone

According to a report by Huffpost, on Friday, a powerful 'bomb cyclone' tore through the Midwest, bringing extreme flooding to parts of Nebraska, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service reportedly issued a flash flood emergency order early on Friday, affecting areas west of Omaha after a dike on the Platte River in the town of Valley failed.

Several levees reportedly failed across the state, forcing thousands to evacuate.
