Twice as many tornadoes than first thought touched down in central Nebraska this week.
Officials say that four tornadoes hit Lincoln County on Sunday night as severe weather moved through the North Platte area.
Two tornadoes are being classified as EF3s, another one was measured as an EF2 and a fourth as an EF1. The homes west of North Platte that were badly damaged fell victim to an EF3 tornado. The EF3 ranking indicates wind speeds of 140 miles an hour or more.
Four people overall were hurt, all non-life threatning injuries. A tornado relief fund has been established for the victims of the tornado and a local church is spearheading volunteer relief efforts.
