Pilger, NE

WHAT HAPPENED?

Rare twin tornadoes raked across northeast Nebraska. They were part of an outbreak of twisters that virtually wiped Pilger off the land and left a path of death and destruction. The 60-mile swath stretched from near Stanton to the edge of Sioux City, Iowa.
The National Weather Service rated the larger tornado that tore through Pilger as an EF4, capable of causing devastating damage with winds of 166 to 200 mph. The parallel twister was an EF2.
The tornadoes killed two people and injured at least 20 others, some critically.
