(PCM) There is a massive clean-up effort taking place in the small town of Pilger, Nebraska after two tornadoes ripped through their town on Monday.
The twin tornadoes are truly a rare site and are known for their incredible destructive power. The tornado had two visible suction vortices and it is incredibly rare to spot two tornadoes on the ground at the same time in the same general area.
The tornadoes just about obliterated the town of Pilger, as official claim that about 75% of the town is destroyed. The entire business district has been wiped out along with the fire station and about 50 residential homes.
Thus far there have been two reported deaths due to the storm and many others are critically injured. Today, local authorities are still attempting to sift through the rubble in a search for anyone else who may be trapped or injured.
Several storm chasers were able to capture footage of this rare twin tornado occurrence which many are saying they have never witnessed prior.
The governor of Nebraska has issued a state of emergency and more severe weather could be on the way for the region. Our thoughts and prayers are with the residents of Pilger as they continue their clean-up and rescue efforts today.
