The Lincoln, Lancaster County Department of Emergency Management stays in direct contact with the National Weather Service. In case of a flood threat they have a network of warning gages and 39 spotters monitoring current local conditions. If a flood threat is detected they will interrupt local cable to deliver the warning message. In case of an evacuation warning, local police and fire personnel will help facilitate the process. Even with the warning system it is still good to know your evacuation route, and remember that if you feel unsafe at any time you should evacuate and go to higher ground.
