OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The National Weather Service says at least
one powerful tornado ripped through central Nebraska on Monday
night, destroying a home but sparing rural residents.
The service in Hastings says the EF3 tornado hit a rural area
just north of Amhearst, flattening a home.
Meteorologist Ryan Pfannkuch says the family who
lived in the home was vacationing in Florida at the time.
The service has photos of another weaker tornado near Elm Creek.
No injuries have been reported from Monday night’s storms that
raked much of the eastern half of Nebraska.
Pfannkuch says other tornadoes are likely to be confirmed by
teams out in the field studying the damage.
To the east, teams are investigating whether a tornado hit
Fremont, but said no confirmation had been made by Tuesday
afternoon.
