OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraskans are beginning to clean up debris and assess the damage this weekend's severe thunderstorms and tornadoes left behind.
 
       Sunday's storms caused damage across much of eastern Nebraska roughly on a line from the Kansas border up through Hastings and Omaha. No serious injuries were reported. 
 
       Some of the worst damage was in the towns of Sutton and Cordova, Governor Dave Heineman traveled to Beaver Crossing and Cordova on Monday morning to survey the storm.
 
       Sutton Fire Chief Chris Moore says volunteers began cleaning up debris and trees limbs around town at 7 a.m. Monday.
 
       Most of Sutton's downtown buildings sustained damage, but they were all still standing. Moore says structural experts are evaluating the buildings.
 
       At least three Sutton homes lost their roofs and several others were damaged.
 
       Moore says utility officials estimate that Sutton will be without power for at least two days.
