“Bomb Cyclone” was like a Hurricane on Land
It has been called a “Bomb Cyclone,” by Nebraska Senator Deb Fisher. It was called the “storm that had everything.” It has been compared to the “Flood of 1967” in the Gibbon and Shelton areas and the weather event of 2005 in the Wood River area. Whatever it is called over the ensuing years, those who witnessed the storm that roared, rained, and snowed its way across the plains of Nebraska won’t be soon forgotten.
Weather forecasters predicted sustained winds of 50 to 70 mph days before they came calling on Central Nebraska and that, unlike the state’s panhandle, snow accumulations would only amount to one to three inches after changing over from rain on Thursday, March 14. Winter storm warnings, high wind warnings, and flood warnings were all issued by the National Weather Service on Wednesday, which seemed a lot, even for Nebraska weather.
