Episode Narrative Thunderstorms produced three tornadoes which tracked over Dixon and Dakota Counties in extreme northeast Nebraska on the late afternoon of October 4th. One damaging tornado crossed into Dixon County from Wayne County Nebraska, a brief tornado formed and dissipated in Dixon County, and another tornado developed in northern Dakota County before crossing the Missouri River into Union County South Dakota.
Event Narrative A tornado, crossing into Dixon County from Wayne County, severely damaged the roofs of two houses, one of which was a manufactured house, and caused damage to the siding and windows of the houses. Windows of at least one other house were blown out. The tornado also overturned a camper, destroyed or severely damaged a grain bin, numerous farm outbuildings, farm storage buildings, several pieces of farm equipment, and flattened corn crops in several areas. The tornado caused tree damage along its path, including trees uprooted and snapped off at the trunks, and blew down power poles and power lines.
