One dead in Eastern Nebraska

16 Jun, 2014

BqSJ_w0CAAIT-r6Twin Tornadoes sweep Eastern Nebraska. One person is reported dead while 16 others were critically wounded from the tornadoes. At least one of the tornadoes hit the town of Pilger, a community of about 350 people 75 miles northwest of Omaha, the National Weather Service reported. A member of the Stanton County Commission says:

More than half of the town is gone — absolutely gone. The co-op is gone, the grains bins are gone, and it looks like almost every house in town has some damage. It’s a complete mess.
