Storm Knocks Out Power in Nebraska

Utility officials in Nebraska say crews have restored power to everyone who lost electricity in the June 27 storm that hit the Omaha area. The Omaha Public Power District reports that service was restored Saturday morning to the few remaining customers who didn't have power. The storm initially left about 126,000 customers in and around Omaha without power. Officials say it was one of the worst storms in the utility's history. Winds of up to 115 miles per hour damaged trees, power lines and homes, and killed two teenagers in Council Bluffs, Iowa, when a tree fell on their car. The cleanup of fallen tree limbs and other storm damage will likely continue for weeks in the Omaha area.
