Keeping safe after the flood

LINCOLN, NE (News Channel Nebraska) – Health Experts from the University of Nebraska Medical Center are giving advice on how to keep safe and healthy after the recent flooding in the state.

Other topics discussed include health issues associated with cleaning the house after a flood, like cleaning up mold and debris.
