Severe storms moved into southeastern Nebraska from Kansas Sunday, bringing with them high winds, hail, and at least one tornado.
No injuries were reported in Nebraska with little damage reported.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Shawn Rossi with the NWS office in Hastings says the storms formed in northern Kansas Sunday afternoon.
“Yesterday, we saw an area of thunderstorms develop across northern Kansas that moved into south and eastern Nebraska during the late afternoon and early evening hours,” Rossi tells Nebraska Radio Network. “Across our area, we saw one tornado near Superior, Nebraska that’s currently being investigated.”
Rossi says about a third of the state was affected, with Nuckolls County, along the border with Kansas, catching the brunt of the storm.
NWS employees are investigating the damage left in the wake of the tornado. Though it did little damage in Nebraska, some structural damage was reported near Munden, Kansas where at least two people reported minor injuries.
Rossi says we might not be done with these storms.
“Much of the southeastern portion of the state again is in a moderate risk now for severe weather from the storm prediction center in Norman, OK,” Rossi says about tomorrow’s forecast. “So, we’re keeping a close eye on that.”
The storms tomorrow are expected to cover about two-thirds of the eastern part of Nebraska. These storms could produce very high winds and damaging hail.
