Hoskins Among the Towns That Took Direct Hits From Friday Storms

Hoskins Among the Towns That Took Direct Hits From Friday Storms

HOSKINS – Residents in Hoskins, are among those cleaning up from tonight’s storms.

Residents in Hoskins reported seeing multiple funnel clouds, although none have been confirmed by the National Weather Service at this time.

The Wayne County town suffered major tree damage, but remarkably, despite a few homes suffering damage to their siding and roof and one destroyed shed, there was very little structural damage in town.

Tree limbs knocked power out to all of Hoskins. Residents were told by Northeast Nebraska Public Power District officials that they hoped to have power restored sometime tomorrow.

Storms were reported all over northeast Nebraska, three years to the day that tornadoes tore Pilger and Wakefield.
