BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) — The City of Bellevue is allowing some residents back in to Green Acres after historic flooding affected the area.

Some access has been granted to Green Acre homes that haven't been affected by floodwaters, a press release from the City of Bellevue Police Department says. Automated text messages will be sent to all tenants of Green Acres who can return on a limited basis.

Floodwaters and previously flooded areas are highly contaminated. Green Acres continues to have no electricity, and there may not be electricity for some time. Trespassing laws are still in effect in the area, along with a 8:00 p.m. curfew time. Residents will not be allowed in until 7 a.m. the following day if they decide to leave.

Lot numbers NOT listed below will not be accessible for some time. Unfortunately, Bellevue is confident a great majority of lots not listed are a total loss.

Residents can return to the following lots:
