Heineman praised local flood-preparation efforts Wednesday
during a conference call with reporters.

But the governor said he remained worried that the levees protecting Nebraska land will not hold under months of water pressure.

Flooding remains a concern all along the river because of the
massive water release by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from
upstream reservoirs.

Flood experts say this year's flood is unusual because the water could remain high until early September.

The Nebraska National Guard is monitoring the levees around
Omaha to look for water boils, seepage and other trouble signs.
