NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - A flood warning remains in effect but the South Platte River has crested and is headed back down below flood stage in western Nebraska.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Taylor said Monday that the overflow caused only minor flooding in North Platte on some secondary streets and at Iron Eagle golf course. On Sunday the river crested around 4 inches over flood stage of 13 feet, and Taylor said it likely would be back under flood stage by late Monday or sometime overnight.

To the east, the Platte River was approaching flood stage of 6 feet on Monday morning in Kearney and is expected to crest about 4 inches above flood stage by late Wednesday or early Thursday.
