NORTH BEND, Neb. — The small community of North Bend has its post office back after flooding required months of cleanup.

Muddy waters several inches deep filled the North Bend Post Office when much of the town flooded in March after a levee failed, the Fremont Tribune reported.

An outside contractor was hired to clean up the mess that the flooding left behind, and postal operations moved 3 miles away to Morse Bluff.

The North Bend office finally reopened in late June.

Postal Clerk Cindy Madsen said having the post office back will help the community get back to normal.

The office handles 800 to 900 rural deliveries a day and covers the towns of Ames, Morse Bluff, Rogers and North Bend. It also has 350 post office boxes. — AP
