LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The governor has approved a state disaster declaration to help Nebraskans recover from the tornadoes and severe thunderstorms that swept through parts of eastern Nebraska over the weekend.
Cleanup is underway in southwest Iowa after a tornado left a half-mile-wide damage path in Thurman.
The National Weather Service in Omaha says the tornado touched down two miles north of Percival, Iowa, and continued in to Thurman just after 5:30 PM Saturday. The tornado left a ten-mile long path of damage before lifting just south of Tabor.
