OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Forecasters say more rain has been forecast for sopping wet eastern Nebraska.

A National Weather Service advisory says a storm that probably dropped more than an inch on Polk and northern York counties on Friday morning was drifting east. Minor flooding is expected in the two counties. A gauge at the Upper Big Blue Natural Resources District office in York says nearly 9 inches of rain had fallen there by Thursday morning.

The Saunders County Sheriff’s Office says roads and highways in and out of Wahoo are no longer closed by flooding, but water was still standing at the Nebraska Highway 66 junction with the spur into Wahoo.

The heavy rain and runoff forced the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District to close Elkhorn River access sites in Douglas County.
