PILGER, NEBRASKA (Worthy News)– Massive tornadoes swept through northeast Nebraska, killing at least one, and destroyed more than half the town of Pilger, the Associated Press reported.
At least two twisters touched down approximately a mile of each other, according to the National Weather service.
"More than half the town is gone – absolutely gone," Stanton County Commissioner Jerry Weatherhold told AP. "The co-op is gone, the grain bins are gone, and it looks like almost every house in town has some damage. It's a complete mess."
Pilger, a town of about 350, lies roughly 100 miles northwest of Omaha, Nebraska.
