Click for the story (http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_page=2798&u_sid=10355890) from the Omaha World Herald.

Cliff Notes - Super cell storm and tornado hit a boy scout camp with approx. 100 campers - 4 fatalities and many injured.

Thoughts and prayers go to everyone at the camp and parents who have scouts there :(

I saw a piece on the news today about the tornado. It was tragic to hear.

We are having out troubles in CR too. The Cedar River thru CR is WAY out of its banks and still rising. Flood stage is 19' .... as of two hours ago the river was at 29.9' and rising about 2" per hour. Photos and video coverage are available at www.kcrg.com and at www.gazetteonline.com

So far, I've been lucky .... I'm still able to pull the water of of my basement using a shop vac and a few 5 gal buckets. (my house doesn't have a sump pump). I will be getting a sump pump and installing it as soon as the ground drys out a bit .....
