On Monday evening as severe storms rolled through NE Kansas a tornado did touch down in Northern Nemaha County.  The tornado was on the ground for 8.5 miles and was rated as an EF1 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.  Jeremy Goodwin and myself were on the air before any other station in NE Kansas with this warning.  The good news is no fatalities or injuries were reported.  However, some damage did occur.  Click the link below to see pictures of the damage and the path of the tornado.
