Flooding is a big concern for large parts of central U.S. The rising Missouri River in particular has already claimed at least three lives.
The flooding has also destroyed hundreds of homes and caused billions of dollars in damage. Weather experts have warned the danger from flooding could persist into May.
CGTN’s Hendrik Sybrandy filed this report from Nebraska.
