Dangerous weather strikes Nebraska, threatens Midwest

| No Comments

Residents throughout the Midwest region of the United States will face strong storms and fast-moving tornadoes this weekend, forecasters warned.

The Associated Press reported late Saturday that Tornadoes were reported in Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma while strong storms hit Iowa during the day.

In Nebraska, barns, outbuildings, large trees, vehicles and other structures suffered damages from an apparent tornado, officials said.

According to CNN, Wichita, Kan., was under a tornado emergency late Saturday as a large twister traveled through south-central Kansas -- a situation the National Weather Service classified as "particularly dangerous."

CNN also reported that a possible tornado struck a hospital in Creston, Iowa, on Saturday evening.

The most dangerous weather in the area is expected to come Saturday night into Sunday morning, the Associated Press reported.
