Severe weather strikes Nebraska on Tuesday
NORFOLK, Neb. -- Severe weather made its way through the state in waves on Tuesday.
Multiple severe thunderstorm, tornado and flash flood warnings were issued in Nebraska, as multiple fronts worked east across the state.
The National Weather Service has confirmed a series of weak tornadoes across rural parts of northwestern Kansas and a county in southwestern Nebraska along the Kansas line.
The tornadoes hit Tuesday afternoon as a line of storms moved across the Plains. Spotters and video confirmed separate tornadoes in Decatur, Norton and Gove counties in Kansas and an one in Red Willow County in Nebraska, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Ed Holicky based in Goodland, Kansas.
There were no reports of injuries or damage from the tornadoes, Holicky said.
The system brought gusty winds, heavy rain and some hail, leading to downed tree limbs some roof damage across the region.
Large hail stones were reported in south central Nebraska, with baseball-sized hail in rural Harlan County.
Heavy rains fell in northeast Nebraska earlier in the day, prompting flash flood warnings in Wayne County as creeks overflowed near towns like Winside and Hoskins.
