OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Concerns about rising water is causing Sarpy County authorities to ask dozens of people who live along the Platte River to leave their homes.

Deputies informed homeowners at Linoma Beach, Beacon View, and Thomas Riverside Acres about the voluntary evacuation plans Wednesday.

Sarpy County Leaders issued an emergency declaration for the entire county on Wednesday, asking anyone who's been asked to evacuate to leave immediately so crews can avoid having to rescue them.
