Annual homeless count conducted Tuesday night

OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Volunteers braved the cold and hit the streets of Omaha to help get an idea of how many people have nowhere to call home. 

The annual count helps get a snapshot of what the homeless problem looks like on any given night. Volunteers split up in groups and spread across Douglas, Sarpy and Pottawattamie Counties. The count is required by federal law. 

There is no update on the total yet, but previous updates have shown that there are about 2,000 homeless people in the Omaha Metro.
