The National Weather Service (NWS) has confirmed an EF1 tornado struck in Otoe County on Tuesday.
Officials say it traveled for seven miles from two miles northeast of Lorton to nine miles east of Lorton.
According to Otoe County Emergency Management Director Gregg Goebel, damage from that tornado was primarily to trees, but some homes and outbuildings were also affected.
“We had property damage at three or four properties,” Goebel said, “siding, roof shingles, some damage to outbuildings and sheds.”  
Goebel said that while many people felt the effects of the storm, the extent and value of damages were unknown at this point.
Goebel also said that there were actually two damage paths the National Weather Service was looking at.  
“We had a second damage path a little north of the first one,” he said, “and we don’t know yet if that was also a tornado, the same one or a different one.  It’s hard to tell.”
Information is preliminary and is still being reviewed by the NWS.
An EF1 tornado is classified based on winds reaching between 86 and 110 mph.
