Tornado hits farms
June 16, 2022
Last Tuesday evening the Nebraska Weather Bureau issued a tornado warning when a radar indicated rotation over Ruskin.
"My heart sank when I heard it!" Ryan Mikkelsen, a Ruskin area farmer, said.
Tuesday morning, Ruskin residents awoke to streets littered with tree limbs and leaves, but there was no reports of damaged buildings.
Ruskin residents and the surrounding community rolled out their four-wheel and trailers - both big and small and farmers arrived with larger tractors trailers an grapple forks. By late afternoon, all the streets were clear and nearly all the yards.
