Johnson County Tornado

By:  Newsroom

The Johnson county emergency manager says a tornado has taken down barns, outbuildings and trees in a path that spans several miles.

Clint Strayhorn says he is walking the path of destruction left by the apparent tornado reported about 5:15 p.m. Saturday near the Johnson-Nemaha county line.

He says he's walked 2 miles and still hasn't reached the end of the storm damage. Strayhorn says he sees a barn down and has had reports of other barns and outbuildings being destroyed, as well as several downed trees.

There's no word yet on injuries. Strayhorn says he's still trying to make sure everyone is ok.

The Nemaha county emergency manager, Renee Critser, says the twister moved into her county but she's not heard of any damage.
