What should we expect. It seems that this town always over-reacts when it comes to different warnings like tornado etc..etc. Is the Omaha area in danger of this flood?

I don't think Omaha is in danger. I went down to the pedestrian bridge on Wednesday and it was still about six feet below the grounds in front of the parks service building.

Do you think that they will shut power to NE Omaha. I work in NE Omaha blocks from away from the river. And buildings around ours are sandbaging their perimeters. Power transformers are being sandbaged.

OPPD has been maintaining a blog to provide the public with flood updates. Fort Calhoun and Nebraska City seem to be the main areas of concern and I don't see much with regards to the North Omaha power station. Unless things change, I can only assume that North Omaha will be fine.

The only problem Omaha might have is if we get a big storm and a lot of rain all at once. That would cause problems in some areas, but most of the city will be fine. Also avoid reading the local news feedback sections. Many people there seem to think the world is ending.

Omaha is pretty much safe. From my understanding, their flood control systems are pretty solid. Councul Bluffs, on the other hand, is about to get its ass kicked. The southwest part of town is especially vulnerable.

I dont think Omaha is in danger and it if was, we all remember the stadium is to be protected more over than the people.

after all, Fahey spent 100-120 million tax dollars for a stadium we didnt get to have a vote on as citizens of omaha

you are so right on CB. CB is mostly flatland.

unlike Omaha, CB dont have neighborhoods on hills like some areas of Omaha which have neighborhoods on higher elevations.

I hope, for CB's sake that the river doesn't rise enough to call into question levee integrity.
