Multiple tornadoes blasted through Nebraska, South Dakota and Iowa in a rare fall severe weather outbreak.  It is part of a powerful system that has dumped multiple inches of snow in western South Dakota, western Nebraska and eastern Wyoming.

One of the tornadoes originated near Stanton, Nebraska at approximately 4:30 in the afternoon as spotters detected a rope tornado.  The storm proceeded north and east through Wayne  destroying homes along the way.  At times the storm and tornado had reached speeds of 50 miles per hour as it traced a line toward Sioux City.  As it reached the Missouri River, the tornado strengthened into a multiple vortex tornado.  It blew past Jefferson then into Iowa toward Hinton and LeMars.

A second tornadic storm developed in northeast Nebraska near Emerson in Thurston County about an hour later.  Once it jumped the Missouri River and got into Iowa, Sloan, Moville, Quimby and Cherokee were in its path. At times the tornado grew as big as a mile wide while in Woodbury County in Iowa.

Multiple houses were destroyed in Wayne, Nebraska and Quimby, Iowa, with debris reported in Jefferson, South Dakota.
