See Damage From Nebraska Tornadoes

Two powerful tornadoes swirled side by side through the countryside of northeastern Nebraska Monday, wrecking nearly three-fourths of the small town of Pilger.

According to Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger, two people died during the storm – but there are stories of survival as well.

Storm chaser Mark "Storm" Farnik described how he helped to rescue a family trapped in a basement on "New Day" Tuesday.
