Nebraska Inland Flooding

Nebraska has already done a lot to address the current risks it faces from inland flooding. However, it has done very little to even begin to prepare for its future threat. Taking steps to understand its vulnerability to climate change-related inland flooding risks and developing an adaptation plan would help Nebraska be better prepared for the future.
