Catastrophic flooding caused by rapid snowmelt and heavy rain, agriculture devastated, U.S. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Catastrophic flooding caused by rapid snowmelt and heavy rain, agriculture devastated, U.S.

Rapid snowmelt and heavy rain combined to produce massive flooding across Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Wisconsin and South Dakota.

Historic to catastrophic flooding inundated homes and businesses and devastated farmlands following a powerful late-season winter storm that swept through the country last week.

The massive flooding event was triggered by a rare combination of rapid snowmelt, ice-covered rivers, saturated frozen soil, and heavy rain from the so-called "Bomb Cyclone" or Winter Storm "Ulmer," as it was named by The Weather Channel.
