Weekend storms leaves a lot of cleanup for the Tri-Cities

Sunday marked a busy day of clean up across the tri cities. Thunderstorms Saturday night brought high wind gusts and hail to Central Nebraska. In Hastings power was restored to customers who had lost it by the afternoon… Southern Power District was working to restore power to Kearny and Phelps counties by last last night, but Franklin County customers likely won't see power restored until today.

In the Hastings area, wind gusts between 70 and 90 miles per hour toppled trees and snapped limbs. North of Chautaqua Park, a truck was crushed by a tree; some fell on power lines. The outdoor warning sirens sounded late Saturday night, as a storm moved through the Hastings area. Many residents were hit by only the strong winds, while others reported hail with the storm ranging from 1 to 4 inches large. Other damage was reported across the area to an ethanol plant near Axtell, grain elevators in Atlanta and Hendley, and there's significant damage to boats and campers at the Harlan County Reservoir. The National Weather Service in Hastings is still assessing damage, but does have pictures on its Facebook page of a tornado near Hildreth. Another tornado was reported by a storm chaser near the Giltner/Trumbull area.
