An Omaha Parks and Recreation employee opens the umbrellas Thursday along Lewis & Clark Landing on the riverfront.
And members of the Omaha Fire Department helped with cleanup along the riverfront, washing away the sand and silt left behind when the high water levels receded.
Saturday, the shrinking Missouri River at Omaha fell below flood stage for the first time since late May. The river fell below 29 feet at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, the National Weather Service said.
Scott Dergan, meteorologist with the weather service office in Valley, said over the weekend that flood warnings would remain in effect for river communities until the Missouri River is "a good deal below flood stage."
Despite the weather service's caution, however, another milestone is to be reached Friday morning: The floodgates at Omaha, which were put up May 28, are scheduled to be removed.
