Pence To Tour Nebraska Flood Zone
Reuters reports Vice President Mike Pence is due to travel to Nebraska on Tuesday to tour the devastation left by floods in the Midwest which have killed at least four people and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage.
Media reports including CNN say that 74 of Nebraska’s 93 counties had declared states of emergency by early Tuesday.
Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts will join Pence as he surveys the damage Pence is traveling at U.S. President Donald Trump’s request.
The flood waters have been driven by snow melt from heavy rains last week and warm temperatures.
