McCook, Neb. — There were over 30 preliminary tornado reports in Nebraska and Kansas on Friday and Friday, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Storm Prediction Center. The twisters were spawned by two separate violent storms, known as supercells, that tracked for hundreds of miles. There were a number of unconfirmed sightings of tornadoes last night in other locations in central, west-central and southwest Nebraska.
Dawson County Emergency Management Coordinator Brian Woldt will meet with the National Weather Service damage survey team to discuss how to document the damage.
There are preliminary reports of a home damaged south of Farnam. A pivot, flag pole, trees and power pole were damaged east of Cozad.
