Severe Thunderstorm Razes Buildings to the Ground in Rural Nebraska

A severe thunderstorm swept through parts of Nebraska, on December 15, razing buildings to the ground in the village of Clatonia.

This footage, filmed by Ian McDougall, shows buildings destroyed in the aftermath of the storms in Clatonia.

According to the Gage County Sheriff’s Office, high winds and rain caused “traffic and safety concerns with washed-out roads, downed trees on power lines, and debris being blown onto the roadway”.

The Sheriff’s office also said a building was blown onto one road, with more debris blocking another.

Severe weather warnings were in place across Nebraska on Wednesday afternoon, with widespread reports of tornadoes.

The National Weather Service said the reports of tornadoes could not be confirmed “until damage surveys are conducted”. Credit: Ian McDougall via Storyful
