Officials confirm Nebraska tornado reports
DILLER, Neb. (AP) - Officials have confirmed that tornadoes were responsible for damaging homes and other buildings and injuring two people in southeast and south-central Nebraska. The National Weather Service says a twister rated at EF2 on the Enhanced Fujita scale ripped into Edgar on Monday night, damaging a dozen or more homes and several grain bins. The scale reading means it generated winds between 111 mph and 135 mph. A weather service survey team says there were two tornadoes in Jefferson County and one in Gage County on Monday. The storms included an EF2 twister that coursed over six miles between Diller and Harbine.
