    (TWC) – Flooding in parts of the Midwest has left one man dead threatens a Nebraska dam and nuclear power plant as heavy rains mixed with a melting snowpack swell waterways to historic levels. An unidentified Nebraska farmer was killed Thursday after the tractor he was using to try and save a stranded motorist was carried away by floodwaters, the Omaha World-Herald reports.

    Mark Becker, spokesman for the Nebraska Public Power District, previously told the Omaha World-Herald that if the river rises to 45.5 feet this weekend, as projected by the NWS, the nuclear power plant, which accounts for 35 percent of NPPD's power, will have to be shut down.


    Becker noted that when plant shuts down, NPPD will be able to get power elsewhere, and they don't expect the closure to lead to outages.
