Floodwater in south-central Nebraska reached its highest level Friday morning. The Platte River at Kearney was reported to be 6.9 feet.

Some access roads and fields in Buffalo County are underwater.

Damage is expected to be minor, though the water may be contaminated so people are being advised to stay away.

The rising river is the result of floodwater from Colorado flowing east.
