Nine inches of rain fell Monday night, July 8, in south-central Nebraska causing widespread flooding. Kearney, population 30,000, was one of the hardest-hit areas.

KNCSB Disaster Relief Director Frank McCrary announced that all KNCSB Disaster Relief units and volunteers will be staying in Kansas and Nebraska to meet the many flooding needs across both states. This comes after receiving requests from Illinois for help and with a hurricane hitting the Gulf Coast.

Both trained and untrained volunteers are needed. On-the-job training will be provided. If you can help, contact Frank McCrary at
