Siouxland area impacted by Tuesday night’s severe weather

(KTIV) – Severe weather, overnight, has left behind damage in parts of western Siouxland.

Nasty storms tore through Boyd, Holt, and Howard Counties in Nebraska, causing a fair amount of damage.

That severe weather has since passed.

Several communities saw slight damage, but others are picking up the pieces of the damage on Wednesday.

That includes the community of Burke South Dakota in the southern part of the state.

The town woke up to significant damage to several areas of the town, including the Burke Civic Center, High school, gym, and Lumber Yard.

Mayor Tom Glover says two people suffered minor injuries when a garage collapsed Tuesday night.

A GoFundMe campaign for Burke has already raised more than $4000.

In Nebraska, a thunderstorm left thousands of people without electricity and flooded several streets.

The National Weather Service says more than 1 and a half inches of rain fell on parts of Grand Island, flooding and closing several underpasses.

Police say power lines, trees and limbs are down and debris litters streets and yards in Grand Island.

Holt County Nebraska was another area hit by damage from that storm.

The National Weather Service says wind gusts reached 58 miles per hour in O’Neill and Stuart saw hen-egg size hail which is about two inches in diameter.

Trees were snapped and blocked the road near O’Neill and grain bins were damaged near Atkinson in last night’s storm.

Thankfully no one was seriously injured as these storms rolled through the region.
