Nebraska Tornadoes - Storm Report
OCTOBER TORNADOES LEAVE PATH ACROSS NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA
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.
