OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Monday night, four teens from Gretna lost their lives and another ended up in critical condition after a wreck on 180th and Platteview Road. As people in Gretna mourned, surrounding communities flooded social media platforms with shows of support. Today, people are continuing the wearing it on their sleeves.

Around Omaha, and probably further as the day goes on, people are wearing green for Gretna and posting images on social media platforms with #GoGreen4Gretna. Others are showing support with #GretnaStrong as well.

The first post, calling for people to wear green, came from Millard South.

And it seems to have caught on...

Today, we'll continue to look at the impact of the crash on Gretna and the how the show of support from other communities is helping them in their time of need.

We'll also be talking with mental health professionals about PTSD Awareness Month and how Monday night's tragedy may impact first responders who came upon the scene.
