The month of March has brought extreme weather events from border to border. From blizzards in Western Nebraska to record setting flooding across Central and Eastern Nebraska. Billions of dollars in lost property and infrastructure damage are being felt by individuals and communities in Nebraska. We have months to years of repairs ahead of us and that includes emotional recovery as well. Loss of homes, and businesses will not be easily recouped. Those who lost family and friends are especially devastated. We are "NEBRASKA STRONG" but that does not mean we don't have a breaking point. Realizing the need for professional help is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and resilience. There is help available, if you or someone you know is struggling please reach out.
