OMAHA (KPTM) - The Colorado floodwaters are moving closer to Eastern Nebraska, according to experts.
"Water as we speak, is on its way," said David Pearson, with the National Weather Service.
Pearson has been monitoring the river levels of the Platte throughout Eastern Nebraska.
"Something we saw coming from a long ways away, and it' s just a matter for it to get here," said Pearson.
Dan Mensik is camping in the Twin Rivers State park for the first time. "Getting away for a while, and it seems to be the only way you can get away from everything."
Mensik said the water is right for fishing, but only for just now. " People are going to want to keep out of this water, don't want to be swimming in it. There's going to be a lot of debris coming down."
Pearson said he expects the floodwaters to hit the Platte river next week. ""We'll see the water stay elevated going into fall and winter," said Pearson.
Pearson said water levels could raise four to five feet, but water will stay in the banks of the Platte.
"People get the impression that the river is going to be as safe at is usually is, but there may be debris and the current is faster," said Pearson.
Pearson water levels will stay high throughout the winter.
