The National Weather Service has issued a FLASH FLOOD WARNING effective until 07:45 PM CDT for Douglas County. Metro street flooding is reported.
Local Menard's Stores in the Omaha area are accepting donations for the Nebraska Humane Society.
Anything associated with pets is appreciated; food, toys as well as leashes and collars.
Menard's Managers wanted to do something for National Pet Month and decided to let customers help meet the needs of the local shelter.
Sam Park says, "When it first started we had no idea what to expect but we already have three quarters of our box full and we've only been doing it for about a week and a half so there is a lot of interest." 37
Donation boxes are located at the Menard's Stores in Bellevue, Elkhorn and Omaha. New items can be purchased at Menard's or elsewhere and donated through the month of May.
