At least one dead following massive eastern Nebraska tornados

 A hospital spokeswoman says at least one person is dead and 16 others are in critical condition after two massive tornadoes swept through northeast Nebraska.

Jodi Richey of Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk says the victims were brought into the hospital after at least one of the twisters devastated Pilger. Meteorologists have also been tracking a massive tornado near the town of Burwell, in central Nebraska.

Governor Dave Heineman will be traveling to the Pilger area in the morning to survey storm damage caused by tonight’s severe storms. The Governor will be joined by Nikki Weber, Preparedness Section Manager of the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency.
