Several tornadoes hit parts of eastern Nebraska last Friday, April 26, 2024, leaving at least three people injured as a large storm that could last a few days and intensifies in the central United States.

The US National Weather Service received at least 42 reports of tornadoes on Friday afternoon at 6:30 pm ET, in at least three states, including Texas, Nebraska and Iowa.
A hurricane devastated the suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska, damaging hundreds of homes, structures and miles of farmland.

Injuries were reported, but no deaths

“Some houses have been razed and no longer exist,” Thomas Hinterdorfer, a storm chaser, told CNN.

Videos and photographs of heavily damaged houses and crushed trees are circulating on social media.

Omaha’s Eppley Airfield, the largest airport serving the region, was briefly closed Friday so officials could assess the damage, according to CNN.

Tornadoes are expected to continue through Sunday, but this Saturday could be the most dangerous day, according to local media.
