Nebraska’s governor noted that following a flood of far less severity in 2011, it took over 100 days for flood waters to subside.

Will you escape the Day of the Lord? You can, if you follow the instructions in your Bible.

The devastating rains on the parched land brought tremendous flooding that subsequently drowned and starved almost a half-million head of cattle. Photos from the air show dead cows huddled together to avoid rising waters and the driving rain and cold.
