Flooding along the South Platte River in western Nebraska had initially caused little damage, but the river continues to rise as Colorado floodwaters arrive.
 
The flooding began near the Colorado-Nebraska border on Wednesday and forced the closure of the Interstate 80 exit into Big Springs and a truck stop.
 
 A breach in the river bank also developed west of Brule. Keith County Emergency Manager Pete Peterson says the water encroached on the Farmers Cooperative Association grain elevator outside of town but didn't threaten Brule.
 
Officials said the South Platte was extremely full at Ogallala Thursday morning, but hadn't yet overflowed.
 
The National Weather Service predicts flooding will continue along the South Platte and later the Platte River over the next several days as the surge of water moves east.

The Nebraska State Patrol has posted three videos of the South Platte River. The aerial videos were taken by the NSP Aviation Division fixed-wing aircraft (airplane), Thursday morning, Sept. 19.
