On the morning after the snowstorm, Professor Ken Dewey of the Geosciences
Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, toured the city and consulted with the
Mayor of Lincoln, Mike Johanns, regarding the severity of the situation. These are
some of the images that he saw.
Please note: these images are the property of Professor Ken Dewey and should not be

Lincoln Mayor Mike Johanns at the Sunday
morning (10/26) press conference during which he
declared a state of emergency. (K.Dewey)

More damage. (K.Dewey)
Caution! Low Bridge! (K.Dewey)
Some people had difficulty finding their house. (K.Dewey)
Once they found their house, they had to look for their car. (K.Dewey)
After finding their cars, they still had to look for the road. (K.Dewey)
Eventually, road crews were able to clear some
paths along emergency route through the city. (K.Dewey)
Although this photograph was taken after a snowstorm
that occurred in March, 1998 rather than the October
Snowstorm, the amount of snowfall was nearly the
same. I think that this photo helps to visualize the scale
of what happened (K.Dewey).
