City of Bellevue Flood Update - 8:00pm on Friday, June 28, 2024

Good Evening! Here are the 8pm photos on Friday, June 28, 2024 from Haworth Park and the surrounding areas. Water is up a few more inches from 8am and since the winds were calmer this evening, the Bellevue Police Department's Drone was able to get photos from a few different areas.

The latest forecast from the Omaha reporting station is still at a crest projection of 33.1 feet with peak flows projected Saturday afternoon instead of this evening as earlier forecasted. The Omaha Metro Area and south will be above flood stage through next week at least and depending on precipitation over the next week possibly longer.

The good news is that according to a statement from the Papio-Missouri River NRD earlier this afternoon, "Significant impacts to our communities along the Missouri and Platte Rivers are not expected at this time, no imminent life safety or critical issues have been identified at this time."

The City of Bellevue will continue to monitor this flood event with our partners until the water has receded.

  • The City of Bellevue's Police Department has notified Offutt AFB and all other necessary agencies and has received all necessary permissions to fly their drone in this area. Drone use without these permissions is not allowable in this area due to the proximity of Offutt AFB.
  • Due to recent storms in our area, the City of Bellevue Public Works Department will open the City's Tree Dump for extended hours on Saturday, June 29, 2024. The Bellevue Tree Dump will now be open from 8am to 5pm on Saturday, June 29, 2024 for residents to dispose of storm related tree debris. The Tree Dump is unmanned and is a service for all Bellevue residents. No commercial dumping is allowed. The City of Bellevue Tree Dump is located just north of 8902 Cedar Island Road near the Rose Lane intersection.

  • With all the storm damage Bellevue has experienced, there seem to be storm chasing contractors appearing in neighborhoods throughout our community. Many of these companies are totally legitimate but unfortunately, we are getting reports of a few that are not licensed to do work in the City of Bellevue.

    In order to protect Bellevue citizens from deceitful contractors or high pressure sales tactics, the City of Bellevue recommends that before any resident commits to a contractor or company to do any work at your home or business, please contact the Permits and Inspections Department at 402-293-3014 to verify they are a licensed and insured contractor with the City of Bellevue.
