A massive winter storm is moving its way now in the Western Corn Belt.

Eastern Nebraska and South Dakota are receiving too much rain creating flooded pastures and turning houses into lakefront properties.

High winds, some wind speeds reaching 60 miles per hour, blowing snow in the central and western part of South Dakota into prime cattle country. The weather is pressuring producers to take action as many of them are in the middle of calving season.
