Severe thunderstorm causes some damage in rural NE Nebraska but avoids hard-hit Pilger area

Share/Save/Bookmark

HADAR, Nebraska — A severe thunderstorm caused some damage in rural northeast Nebraska Monday morning, but mostly avoided the area around Pilger that was hit hard by storms earlier this month.

The National Weather Service says the storm destroyed some outbuildings and damaged at least one home in Pierce County just northwest of the town of Hadar.

Emergency management officials reported a tornado as the storm moved across Pierce County.

The storm also generated hail up to 1.75 inches in diameter near Pender and Walthill.

But the storm stayed north of the Stanton County town of Pilger that was heavily damaged by a tornado on June 16.
