OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – No injuries have been reported after a night of tornadoes in parts of northern and northeast Nebraska.

The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency says a suspected twister damaged farmsteads near Coleridge and in the Laurel and Hartington areas on Tuesday. Coleridge sits about 35 miles north of Pilger (PIHL’-gur), which was heavily damaged by a tornado on Monday. Two people were killed.

The National Weather Service also says tornadoes touched down Tuesday night in northwest Nebraska’s Cherry and Hooker counties. The service says it received reports that a semitrailer was overturned and a car was blown over.

Sheriff’s dispatchers in both counties say they’ve heard no reports of injuries.
