Storm Damage

Morrill County storm aftermath, May 10, 2018

A spring storm with high winds, hail and a possible tornado caused considerable damage to center pivots, buildings and trees east of Bridgeport, NE Thursday evening.  The damage started south of Bridgeport near the Court House and Jail Rock golf course and continued to Broadwater, NE.  The majority of the damage was along the south side of the North Platte River along state Highway 92.  Numerous center pivots were flipped over, power poles were snapped off and trees uprooted.  One machine shed was destroyed and scattered for half a mile.  The area power district were replacing poles and downed power lines.
