Local Red Cross teams have been busy working around the clock as flood conditions surrounding the South Platte River continue to loom.
"Our biggest concern is that people have a safe place to go, they have good food, and if they are evacuated we don't want anybody to be homeless," said Red Cross Regional Disaster Manager Susan Epps.
The Red Cross Nebraska and Southwest Iowa team has been on high alert over the past week and have been going none stop to prepare for the South Platte River flooding.
"We made sure that we had arrangements with the facilities in those area to open a shelter if need be; arrangements with vendors to get the supplies we would need; looking at some of our cooperate friends for donations," Epps says.
As water levels rose on Wednesday, areas like Big Springs and Ogallala received a helping hand through meals, water; and a shelter was put up in Big Springs for good measure.
"As the water arrived there, we were far enough out that we wanted to be there and be ready and we will continue to stage our vehicles and our supplies in the event that a community in the flood warning area needs shelter," added Epps.
And as water moves further into Central Nebraska, many locals are still left not knowing what to expect, but they're prepared.
"We're just waiting for it really. We don't know anything really. We don't know if it's going to be bad or if it's going to be minimal," Hershey resident Whitney Cooks said.
And while uncertainty continues to loom over the heads of many, the Red Cross is staying put.
