Areas of Douglas County received between 8 and 10 inches of heavy rainfall within eight hours July 31-Aug. 1, which caused widespread flooding and potentially caused damage to more than 100 homes.

If this rain had fallen over a 24-hour period, it would have been close to the 100-year rainfall event used to create Douglas County FEMA floodplain maps. Because it happened over eight hours, historical data indicates that this particular storm is similar to a 500-year flood event.

The Douglas County District Court Clerk’s Office is closed due recent flooding and current cleanup efforts.

Residents who need to make a cash or check payment can go to the Court Trustee’s Office located on the main level of Judicial and Law Enforcement Center. Unfortunately, the Clerk’s Office cannot take credit payments during this time. If residents need to file a document in their court case, they can do so by visiting the Court Trustee’s Office.
