The March 2019 flood continued to draw attention from stakeholders, natural hazard planners, concerned Nebraskans and media outlets through the second quarter of the year. The flood was such a far-reaching event, Raising Nebraska, the well-known agricultural literacy experience at the Nebraska State Fairgrounds, decided to add climatologists Martha Shulski, Al Dutcher and Tyler Williams to the Trusted Voices feature, talking about the flood and climate change and agriculture, too.

“Asking the NSCO climatologists to partner with us has allowed us to not only provide the best information, but it allows the public to hear directly from the experts on a topic,” said Sarah Polak, experience coordinator at Raising Nebraska.
