Norfolk Man Evaluates Tornado Damage in Southeast Nebraska

RAYMOND - A Norfolk man who works as a traveling adjuster for Farm Bureau Insurance says the damage in southeast Nebraska from 11 separate tornadoes is widespread. Robert Hauser was at a house in Raymond northwest of Lincoln today that had typical tornado damage. Hauser says he has been an insurance adjuster for 10 years, and the power of tornadoes is unbelievable. He urges families to make sure they have a safe place to seek shelter in storms, and to go to that area when warning are issued. At least three of the tornadoes that struck Sunday evening have rated EF-3, meaning they generated winds of up to 150 miles per hour. The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency estimates the storms caused at least $20-million in damage, but no injuries were reported.
