BROWNVILLE, Neb. (KMTV) — The Nebraska National Guard says the levee near the Cooper Nuclear Station is now reinforced.

Helicopters helped transport sandbags to shore up the levee.

Water levels at the Missouri River near Brownville are now starting to drop slowly, but remain four feet above moderate flood stage.
