Elkhorn & Platte River Flood

The recent flooding of the Elkhorn and Platte River valley has devastated many communities in Nebraska and the Midwest.   The heavy rains melted the record snowfall in very short order causing historic flooding.  Homes have been destroyed and lives lost.  The damage done to roads and homes will take a very long time to repair.  Our prayers go out to the many members of the Mount Michael community who suffer as a result of this natural disaster.

There was a steady stream of cars coming to Mount Michael throughout the past weekend to view the damage from Mount Michael’s elevated hilltop.
