Central Nebraska Tornadoes - Storm Report
Map of yesterday's severe weather reports
FEMA-Nebraska Report


A fast moving cold front left a trail of destruction across North Central Nebraska 
the evening of October 9.  Most of the damage occurred on farms in the 
Merrick, Polk, Platte county area.  No injuries were reported.

Lt. Governor Dave Heineman toured the area.  He found that most of the damage 
was insured.  There was little damage to public facilities and no state emergency 
declaration was filed.  Local authorities were handling the situation.

A typical scene on many farms following the torandoes.  Center pivots took a 
beating as well as outbuildings and some homes.  Clean up crews were busy 
repairing the damage.
