OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said "Desoto and Boyer Chute National Wildlife Refuges remain closed due to flooding."

They say water remains high on the refuge areas and that portions of roadways are still flooded and/or damaged.

The DeSoto Visitor Center was not impacted but the roadway leading to the center's parking lot was, making it inaccessible.

All public-use activities in the area are suspended until repairs have been made.
