Rains cause flooding on some southeast WMAs

LINCOLN, Neb. – Recent heavy rains have caused flooding on some wildlife management areas (WMA) in southeast Nebraska.

Water is over the west road leading into Yankee Hill WMA in Lancaster County, resulting in the road closure until water recedes. The Peru Boat Ramp in Nemaha County and the Schilling WMA in Cass County are closed to access due to high flows from the Missouri River.

Caution should be used when accessing any WMA in southeast Nebraska because of potentially dangerous water conditions.
