Nov. 6 2018 — At roughly 10:50 this morning, the First National Tower in downtown Omaha was evacuated.

The building, that has about 2,000 people working in it on a normal weekday, had a problem with fumes. The fumes had come from a routine check of a humidifier. A cleaning solution had been released throughout the 40 story building. They initially evacuated only the bottom 17 floors, but were forced to evacuate the entire building.

Three people have been taken to the hospital. Three women, two on gurneys and one on a wheelchair. People were treated in the lobby of the building as well.

Drivers were asked to avoid 16th street from Douglas to Dodge Streets and 15th Street to Capitol Avenue.
