    Omaha Flood Evacuation Zone Map

    Looks like Qwest Center and the Airport could be under water if there is even a slight levee breach.

    Yikes!!

    Well my folks flew out of Omaha to San Diego this week, looks like it could be interesting when they fly back on Sunday.

    No they won't. I-29 is closed from CB to Missouri Valley...

    Re: Omaha Flood Evacuation Zone Map

    The idea that if levees fail that those areas would be underwater has been known from the beginning, so that isn't a new or developing story by any means. The airport and other areas nearby would likely see 10 foot of water if the levees were to fail on the west side of the river. It is certainly something to keep a very close eye on, but these are levees that are protecting the city have a much higher standard and build than the levees that are (were) protecting an area such as Hamburg, IA.

    Yeah, I'm not even sure what the official detour route is. Will have to figure it out one of these days.

    Exactly. Kind of a no brainer that there would be widespread flooding IF THE LEVEE BREAKS. Just as obvious, there won't be if it doesn't.

    That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. There are only about 100 faster ways to get from KC to Omaha, like cutting over from I-29 to Hwy 75.

    Eppley is like the New Orleans of airports. It is pretty much located beneath the Missouri.

    Re: Omaha Flood Evacuation Zone Map

    Omaha is so full of ****... On the map it has the qwest center as a flood area but right across the street, TD Ameritrade Ball Park is fine.... Right... I plan on going to the first game tomorrow, to heckle George W... But honestly it wouldnt hurt my fellings if the CWS Fell apart because of this flood... Omaha HAD to build a new ballpark...

    If you can get through the first 2-3 min this is a pretty fun clip from a local radio show yesterday...

    Broadway/Old Lincoln Highway would get you from CB to Mo. Valley, then could route back to I-29, assuming no additional closures north of Mo Valley.
