    South Sioux City, Nebraska readies for flood


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Usedcam is the managing editor of the Dakota County Star newspaper. The people in the area are very nervous and are trying to save as much of their property as they can before the floodwaters reach their homes. "There are people in the flood inundation areas who are literally ripping the carpet out or taking out cabinets," he said. He said half of the town's 12,000 residents are trying to move everything and the other half are clearing out their basements because they expect groundwaters to rise.
