OMAHA (KPTM)- With temperatures rising Tuesday, people living in South Omaha said something else was rising as well.
"It just likes, (coughs) makes you want to gag," said Loran McCown.
McCown has lived across the street from the meat packing plant near 36th and L for six years.
"Someone comes over and they can notice the smell right away," said McCown.
Neighbors in the area said when it gets hot; the "stink" starts to spread. "It smells really bad, like poop, or something like that," said Beatriz Ortega.
Both McCown and Ortega said the summer has been hot, and they've been spending as much time as they can indoors. "The heat makes it worse and you cannot be outside," said Ortega.
