St. Edward among towns featured in ETV documentary on floods

SAND BAGGING — Volunteers and first responders carry sandbags across Beaver Street during the effort to protect St. Edward businesses from flooding last March.
St. Edward is one of the Nebraska communities featured in a new Nebraska Educational Television (NET) documentary on the March flooding disaster.
In a day-by-day, and at times minute-by-minute account of the March flooding, NET News documented the stories of survivors, first responders and local communities.
Dramatic video and still photographs from the March 2019 floods captured the aftermath and heartbreak shared by Nebraskans who witnessed dramatic rescues and horrific damage from failed dams and rushing water that carried huge slabs of ice.
