Storms moved though parts of Douglas, Dodge and Washington counties between 1 and 2 a.m.. Winds with the storms were pegged between 40 and 60 miles an hour.

Much of the damage was in the form of downed trees, which in turn pull down power lines when they fall.

A map showing power outages from OPPD showed that the area most hard hit was generally from 132nd street east to the river and from Maple Road north.

In one incident at 28th and Craig a huge tree came down between two properties and landed on top of one person's car.

In another case OPPD workers were sent to the area of 25th and Polk because of reports of sparking power lines.

By mid-morning Monday there had been no reports of any injuries. The city of Omaha was not reporting any overnight flooding from the storms.

Rainfall amounts varied widely but a few reporting stations indicate just under or over an inch of rain.
