Northeast evacuates on-campus students to nearby church as floodwaters rise - Northeast Community College, Nebraska

Northeast has taken emergency action to evacuate its students living on its Norfolk campus due to rising floodwaters on the nearby North Fork River.

At the request of City of #Norfolk officials, college officials abided by a request Thursday morning to move students off-campus. Approximately 545 students who live in Burkhardt, Path and Simon (residence) halls were transported off campus by Northeast busses, while others used their own vehicles. Many of the students are staying with family and friends, but approximately 200 others are in one location at First Christian Church at Benjamin Avenue and Victory Road – approximately a half-mile from the campus.

“The safety or our students and employees is of the utmost importance to us,” said Dr. Michael Chipps, president. “We want parents, loved ones and friends to all know that our students are in good hands here.”

Flooding Situation at Northeast Community College
One of the rivers affected is North Fork, which runs adjacent to the Norfolk campus and continues to be cresting at record levels. Early this morning, City of Norfolk officials called for the evacuation of low lying areas in the city. This evacuation order included the Norfolk campus. Therefore, College officials went immediately into action and moved about 540 residence hall students off- campus to higher ground.

Students were transported off campus by Northeast busses and personal vehicles. While many students are staying with family and friends, approximately 200 students are currently at one location.

First Christian Church, at Victory Road and Benjamin Avenue, graciously opened their doors to house Northeast students. We are deeply appreciative to Pastor Tim Defor and his staff for accommodating our students. The students are now sheltered in and are receiving excellent care by church and college personnel.
As sent out earlier, all college locations will be closed on Friday. As far as the students are concerned, we have been told from city officials that we will need to have students prepare to remain off campus for the next few days.

This is a complex and delicate situation in many parts of our service area. Our prayers go out to those who have been impacted by the floodwaters.
