NORFOLK — Shortly before 9 a.m., the City of Norfolk issued a warning that Highway 275 was closed east of Norfolk until further notice because of flood waters.

About an hour later, Liz Wallace, the city’s communications manager, updated it to include more closings on the east edge of town: South First Street from Jackson Avenue to Sherwood Avenue is closed.

“We are getting a lot of traffic at the Omaha Avenue/East 275 parking lot access point. We cannot emphasize enough that people need to stay off and away from the levee. It is extremely dangerous right now. The city is engaging in critical activities to control flooding within the levee,” she said.
