In March of 2019, a combination of storms shattered flood records in Eastern Nebraska. The community of North Bend was one of the hardest hit. Water levels reached close to five feet forcing the town to evacuate.
In 2013 voters overwhelmingly approved a $7.37 million bond issue for North Bend Public Schools, specifically impacting infrastructure and academic facilities. When storms hit, this commitment to education paid dividends in unexpected and life-changing ways.
