I-Reporters in action
As the rain-swollen Missouri and Kansas rivers overflowed their banks, I-Reporters jumped in their cars to document the damage, even driving to neighboring communities to check out the flooding.

Nikki Harmon-McKim snapped shots of roads cut off by floodwaters near her home in Falls City, Nebraska, and then headed to nearby Rulo, where she captured more images of the damage.

Joe Brown left his home in Omaha, Nebraska, and traveled south to Bellevue for shots of the flooding in a campground and public park. Brown even went wading to see how deep the water was in a flooded ditch off a roadway. He didn’t like sloshing around with all the carp in the ditch. We wouldn’t recommend it either.

I-Reporters are amazing at how quickly they get out there and send back breaking news.
