PILGER, Neb., June 16 (UPI) -- Severe storms moving through the America's central plains created a pair of tornados that touched down simultaneously in eastern Nebraska.

At roughly 5 p.m. local time one of the two tornados reached Pilger, Neb., destroying every visible structure according to the Omaha World-Herald.

"There's no street signs left, cars are tossed" photographer and storm chaser Brian Davidson said of the town of less than 400.

"It's very chaotic here right now."


Access to the town has been cut off by both weather and local officials, and any casualties or lack thereof have yet to be reported.

"We don't know the number of people and we don't know what they'll find," local hospital worker Sandra Bartling said.

The tornados remain extremely dangerous and are currently headed toward the outskirts of Sioux City, Iowa.
