OMAHA, Neb. (NBC News Channel/WFLA) — Heavy flash-flooding after a storm in Omaha, Neb., left multiple people trapped in an elevator filled with neck-deep water.
The storm also flooded vehicles leaving them stranded in the middle of the street.
The severe weather led to a horrifying moment for one group of people that got stuck in a flooded elevator at the city’s Old Market Lofts, and out of nowhere, water rushed into the elevator, and they became trapped in the neck-deep water.
Some other tenants rushed to their aid, preyed the elevator’s door open and let the water rush out.
There were no injuries.
