Seattle has some hills in the city that are steeper than San Fran's.

In no way, shape or form is Omaha one of the hilliest! Are you nuts? Or does Go NE have multiple accounts?

Cincinnati is also quite hilly.

Indianapolis is so flat that city's highest elevations are highway over passes.

Omaha has some little hillocks, but is not what I'd call "hilly". Cleveland is hillier. Denver has its hilly parts, particularly on the west side of town (west of I-25).

From Les Nessman. "Ooohhh, Nebraska. I'd love to go to Omaha. It's one of our nation's leading pork packing centers. The terrain there is so level, so flat, so relaxing. I've often fantasized about going there. It would be like a dream come true. Oh take me John, take me".
