Several communities in Nebraska are in various stages of recovery after recent storms. The presentation below gives some information about what people may be going through.

If you or people you know are recovering from recent storms, here are some things to keep in mind:

Adjusting to life after a disaster can be tiring.
It is common to feel tired or worn out even with enough sleep. You may be surprised by the intensity of your emotions. Everyone reacts to stress in their own way.

Take care of yourself.
Eat healthy foods when possible and get plenty of rest. Accept help from others when it is offered. If you have some down time, you can talk, play games, or spend time with friends or family.

There are many ways to help those affected by this event.
Offer practical help like cooking, running errands, or babysitting. Help someone take their mind off their situation for a while. Most people will be okay with support from family and friends.
