Floods of 2019 explored in March 16 discussion

Floodwaters cover roadways near Bellevue last week. As floodwaters begin to recede, the university is offering supports to students, faculty and staff.

Martha Shulski, Nebraska’s state climatologist, will present the science behind the floods during “Nebraska Under Water: The Floods of 2019,” at 6 to 7 p.m. March 16 online.

Shulski will explain how the flooding happened, the floods’ connection to climate change and the lasting impact on different industries and individuals — specifically agriculture and farmers — two years later.

The event is hosted by AcClimate, a student-led group dedicated to engaging students on climate issues.
