PILGER, Neb. — Let us be in prayer! I believe I drove by this community on my recent travels. Residents of Pilger, Neb. start a massive cleanup after a storm with dual tornadoes tore through their tiny northeast Nebraska town yesterday, killing a 5-year-old and damaging more than half of the community’s structures. …
Pilger residents will return this morning to survey the damage and gather valuables. The County Sheriff’s Office said law enforcement will escort residents into town.
The two twisters touched down within roughly a mile of each other.
At least 19 people were injured.
