Drivers Warned To Stay Away From Flooded Areas

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says they will issue citations to anyone who is driving around barricades on closed roads in the flooded areas of Valley and Waterloo. Captain Wayne Hudson says on Saturday morning a person tried to get a closer look at the flooding drove around a barricade not realizing how deep the water was and that person's truck stalled. 

"Now this person has to be rescued and it takes away from our main rescue efforts," Hudson says.

There are currently no open roads in or out of the Valley and Waterloo areas. Omaha police will be providing security along the entire Missouri River levee in the city to prevent sightseeing and dangers to anyone on the levee.
