Authorities say an ice jam is causing minor flooding near Loup City in central Nebraska's Sherman County. The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory that is scheduled to expire Tuesday afternoon. The flooding is occurring in low-lying areas near the Nebraska Highway 10 bridge over the Middle Loup River south of Loup City and the Nebraska Highway 92 bridge just west of town. The service says the flooding is expected to continue until the jam breaks up, which could take several days. 

Those looking to tube or paddle on the Elkhorn River in eastern Nebraska are out of luck until next years.

 The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District has announced that all Elkhorn River access sites closed Friday for the season. The access points are scheduled to reopen April 1. Spring flooding and high water levels through stretches of the summer curtailed much of water recreationalists' access to the Elkhorn River this year.
