The impact of the California wildfires is being felt in Nebraska.  The National Weather Service says there is a possibility of smoke from the wildfires reaching the ground in western and south-central Nebraska today.  Officials say the smoke could settle near the surface between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. central time.  People living west of U.S. Highway 281 are expected to experience the thickest smoke, and the smoke could impact the health of residents with preexisting conditions.
