OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Bellevue Police Department (BPD) says almost, all remaining residents of Green Acres and Paradise Lakes may retrieve personal belongings from their homes.

They say there are exceptions though at 351 Hancock (Paradise Lakes) lots 7-12, which are still surrounded by water. They says residents of those lots will be notified when water levels dip enough to allow them gain access.

Those wishing to go to their homes will need sign for a limited entry release permit at the Bellevue City Office of Permits and Inspections which is located at 1510 Wall Street. You may do so from the hours of 8am-4:30pm.

The permit will be needed to get past checkpoints in flooded areas.

Access will only be allowed from 7am-8pm and people may only gather personal items.

No one may not enter homes which have been marked with "Danger" placards.

BPD says people entering the area should protect themselves from contaminated flood waters and to contact their insurance companies or FEMA if they have additional questions.

Update - Bellevue PD says access to the following Green Acres lots is not allowed as well

88, 89, 109-117
