NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraskans who live near the South Platte River are bracing for flooding later this week when the water from Colorado's torrential rains flows into the state. 

The National Weather Service is warning about flooding in low-lying along the South Platte beginning Wednesday and continuing for several days.  The river runs along Interstate 76 and then Interstate 80 when it enters Nebraska from Colorado.  Floodwaters are likely to approach or exceed record levels along the South Platte at least until after it joins with the North Platte River near the city of North Platte.

Lincoln County officials are preparing for flooding in a golf course and some neighborhoods of southwest North Platte.  The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency is sending a team to Ogallala to help local officials respond to flooding.
