Nebraska Officials: Storm Left Nearly $13 M in Damage

July 10, 2008

New estimates say a fierce storm late last month that brought wind gusts higher than 115 mph to the Omaha area left nearly $13 million in damage in its wake.

The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency says the June 27 storm that covered an area from Fremont through Omaha wrought $12.7 million in damage.

The assessment was made by local, state and Federal Emergency Management Agency officials over Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge and Saunders counties.

The preliminary damage amount includes road damage caused by falling trees or flooding, storm sewer damage, Omaha Public Power District costs and personal property damage.

Officials say the number does not include crop damage estimates.
