The National Weather Service said Tuesday that the storm that struck Nebraska Monday appears to have produced four tornadoes.
Two tornadoes were seen on the ground simultaneously near the town of Wisner.
And they were captured on video near the small town of Pilger.
One of the tornadoes was then seen ripping through Pilger, hurling debris into the air.
One storm chaser had a very close encounter with the twister as it crossed the highway.
The tornado caused significant damage in Pilger.
Stanton County Commissioner Jerry Weatherholt said the devastated town looked like a "war zone."
Weatherholt said the south half of the town was leveled, but almost all of it was damaged by the tornado.
"It was like God dragged two fingernails across the land," Gregg Moeller of Wisner told the Norfolk Daily News while describing the "unbelievable" damage caused by the tornadoes.
By 6 p.m. the town was filled with ambulances and fire trucks from across the region.
The twin tornadoes resembled those seen during the Palm Sunday outbreak of 1965 where 137 people were killed — the deadliest tornado outbreak in Indiana history.
