Convoy of Hope - Midwest Flooding

Convoy of Hope is on the ground providing disaster relief throughout the Midwest. Some of the affected areas are --

  • In response to the February  "bomb cyclone" that triggered record Midwest flooding, Springfield-based Convoy of Home sent two trucks full of drinking water to Nebraska, and another two are on the way, totalling about 150,000 pounds of clean water to the flood-ravaged area.

  • Seventy-four cities, 65 counties and four tribal areas in Nebraska declared states of emergency Tuesday as swaths of the Midwest battled rivers swollen by days of heavy rains and spring snowmelt. Three deaths have been blamed on the flooding in Nebraska, but the waters were raging in more than a dozen states.

  • More than 8 million people in 14 states live where a flood warning has been in effect in recent days, the National Weather Service said. About 200 miles of levees were compromised in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Kansas, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said. Thousands of people have been driven from their homes by the fast-rising waters.

  • In Illinois, the town of 25,000 residents west of Rockford could see an all-time record flood along the Pecatonica River.  

  • In Missouri, 130 people were urged to leave their Atchison County homes near strained levees, three of which had been overtopped by water. Missouri State Highway Patrol crews were on standby for rescues.
