Severe Storms Leaves One Dead And Causes Widespread Flooding

Overnight storms left one person dead in Deshler and more than seven injured. Severe thunderstorms unleashed at least seven tornadoes knocking down trees and power lines, and flooding roads in the area. Meanwhile, here in Lincoln heavy rains pounded the city over night causing street flooding, downed trees and power outages. “O” street between 19th and 23rd looked like a lake. The street flooding swallowed a couple of cars but there are no reports of injuries. The flooding threatened some car dealerships and surrounded one bar where customers had to wait for the flood water to retreat before they could leave.
