Omaha, NE – Flood gates have been installed at Lewis and Clark landing in Omaha as the Missouri river rises to near-record levels.
Omaha Public Works officials closed the flood gates Sunday. Flood stage at Omaha is 29 feet. Public Works Director Bob Stubbe says the river is expected to remain at that stage through Tuesday as the Corps of Engineers gradually releases water from the Gavins Point Dam. A Flood Warning is in effect for the Missouri river at Omaha until further notice.
