'Bomb cyclone' pushes east across the USA, flood risks remain

Bomb cyclone pushes east across U.S. after winter siege of Midwest Rockies

"Heavy rain, snow melt, and ice jams on rivers have produced widespread flooding across the Upper Midwest", federal forecasters said.

The quickly rising floods evacuated people from their homes, washed out roads in communities, and left farmers anxious all the water would drown livestock.

The flooding was the worst in almost a decade in places, though the situation was expected to improve quickly over the weekend, according to Mike Gillispie, National Weather Service hydrologist in Sioux Falls. But the effects aren't expected to be as bad as what was seen farther west and south on Thursday, said meteorologist Paul Fajman in Omaha. Colorado (top left) and Wyoming are still reeling from the blizzard that blasted through on Wednesday as 25,500 are still without power.

The storm's center was over Iowa and Nebraska on Thursday and will continue delivering risky weather conditions to 105 million people who are under some sort of watch, warning or advisory as it moves east and then north into Canada.

Ellenbolt also quoted Tony Mangan of the state's public safety department, who said, "I mean, if you don't have the snow in parts of the state, you have flooding in the southeast and south central parts". Colorado Gov. Jared Polis declared a state of emergency, and more than 74,000 customers in Colorado remained without electricity on Thursday afternoon. Per NBC News, as many as 74 million people across America should be expecting severe conditions such as blizzards, heavy rains and flooding.

The National Weather Service predicts "much calmer" weather in most areas this weekend.

Trees snapped by high winds from a late winter storm packing hurricane-force winds and snow cover the Eugene Field house in Washington Park Wednesday, in Denver.

Meteorologists call storms like this one a "bomb cyclone", a winter hurricane that forms when the barometric pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours.

Officials in eastern Nebraska said more than 2,600 people living along the Missouri, Platte and Elkhorn rivers there had been urged to evacuate, as waters breached levees in several rural spots.

As authorities scrambled to rescue drivers, Colorado State Patrol Corporal Daniel Groves was killed after being struck by a vehicle while helping a stranded driver.

The blizzard, bringing severe snowfall, poor visibility and powerful winds, caused hundreds of flight cancellations and thousands of power outages in Colorado and Texas.

A storm like this brings with it all sorts of hazardous weather.

About 50 National Guard soldiers and airmen used specialized vehicles with tank-like treads to rescue 75 people stranded in their cars during the storm.

Five people were hurt and 150 dairy cows had to be euthanized when a tornado hit the small town of Dexter, New Mexico.
