Nemaha picks up after possible tornado

By Lindsey Theis. CREATED May 19, 2013

Nemaha, NE--Strong storms blitzed a small Nebraska village of Nemaha Sunday afternoon. People are surveying the damage, many in shock. It happened so fast, folks who live in Nemaha, near the Nebraska-Missouri state line, say the tornado warning sirens did not sound.

Big trees were split into two. One storm chaser told KMTV that a funnel cloud similar to a rain covered tornado passed through the town.

Neighbors in the town of about 150 say this storm came on fast, bringing hail and strong winds in a matter of minutes.

The Nemaha County Emergency Manager had surveyed the damage Sunday night and was reporting it to the National Weather Service, who will determine if there was a tornado touch down.
