Flood Barrier Saves Highway

Blair, Neb., August 2, 2011 -- A flood barrier keeps the Missouri River floodwaters from inundating Highway 30 just outside of Blair, Nebraska.  The trap bags are critical in keeping one of the few remaining highways open between Nebraska, Iowa, and the I-29 Interstate Highway system.  Jace Anderson/FEMA
