Johanns visits scenes of deadly tornadoes

 This week's tornadoes in northeast Nebraska wreaked havoc for thousands.

One U.S. Senator visited with the victims in Pilger and Coleridge.

Senator Mike Johanns spent Thursday afternoon with volunteers and community members visiting the path of Monday's deadly tornadoes.

Johanns says that nothing could have prepared him for the ddevastationhe saw in Pilger and Coleridge.

"I have to tell you, I was absolutely, completely blown away, very moved by what I saw. It's unbelievable how much damage was done there," says Johanns. "I said to somebody earlier, you could have dropped a bomb in the middle of that community and it could not have been any worse."

Johanns says Nebraska's resiliency and dedication to helping neighbors will help the communities heal.
