Rivers have reached historic levels in 41 locations across the Midwest, creating devastating flooding that has killed at least three people, forced countless evacuations, breached dams and levees, damaged hundreds of homes and flooded a military base. The death toll from the flooding rose to three when an unidentified man died after refusing to leave his home, NBC News reported. In addition, a Norfolk, Nebraska, man died and two others were injured when they drove around a flood barrier in Freemont County, Iowa, on Friday and were swept away. On Thursday, a Nebraska farmer died after attempting a rescue in high water.
