Omahans clear tree debris as 384 wait for power to return
Chance Ryks and Chris Nagel of Omaha unload storm debris from their truck at a City of Omaha drop-off site for tree debris at 11th and Locust Streets. The city's two drop-off sites — the other at Tranquility Park near 120th Street and West Maple Road — will remain open through Friday.

About 384 households were without power Wednesday evening as a result of a Monday morning storm that tore down trees and power lines.
The majority of outages are in Douglas County and are because of problems with individual houses, “so repairs require a tedious house-by-house approach,” the Omaha Public Power District blog said Tuesday.
