COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) An Iowa National Guard transport truck has been deployed to rescue around 30 children from their stranded school bus in Council Bluffs.

Heavy rain overnight and Monday morning flooded some streets and basements in far western Iowa and eastern Nebraska.

Station KETV says the bus had stalled in about 4 feet of water south of downtown Council Bluffs, near 30th and Atlantic Avenue.

The heavy truck made it slowly through the water to reach the bus. The children soon were loaded into the truck and taken to safety. No injuries were reported.

Across the Missouri River, in Omaha, Neb., some streets just north of downtown were closed.

Power outages were reported in Fremont, which is northwest of Omaha.
