Evacuations underway in Ashland

ASHLAND, NE (News Channel Nebraska) – This video from the Nebraska State Patrol in the Ashland-Linoma area taken around 9 this morning tells the same story as much of Eastern Nebraska.

Water levels on the Platte River are rising in the area, but vehicles are still able to drive across roads.

In the Tweet, the NSP says the water is getting very close to Highway 6.
