Hundreds more people evacuated from the virus zone in China are arriving at military bases across the U.S. All passengers will be quarantined for 14 days and monitored for any signs of illness.

Dr. Jennifer McQuiston with the Centers for Disease Control said Friday that fewer than 100 people will stay at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. She says no one on board had shown signs of illness.

The plane arrived from the Wuhan region of China, the center of the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

The plane left Texas and later landed in Omaha, Nebraska, where passengers will be quarantined at a nearby Nebraska National Guard training base.

All 27 Nebraska bridges damaged by 2019 flooding now open

All the bridges damaged during last spring's massive flooding in Nebraska have now been reopened.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation said the Nebraska 13 bridge near Hadar in northeast Nebraska reopened Friday.

The bridge about four miles north of Norfolk was the final one of 27 bridges damaged during last spring's flooding to reopen.

The flooding last March caused the closure of 3,300 miles of highway in Nebraska.

All of the highways affected by the flooding have been reopened.

The Transportation Department says it spent $2.8 million to replace the Hadar bridge.
