Omaha - weekend tornado update

Millard - Blue tarps on Sunday
The tornado damage this weekend in Omaha was worse than it seemed at first. Several homes and businesses in the Millard neighborhood were seriously damaged. The weather experts are calling it an EF-2 tornado, as rated by the Enhanced Fujita Scale. Even though the warning sirens came a bit late for these folks, there were no deaths or serious injuries. Omaha cats are weather wary, and will take to their basements without waiting for sirens when tornadoes threaten.
