Nebraska Governor Tours Tornado Damage; Obama Declares Disaster Area

(Pilger, NE) -- Nebraska's governor is reminding the people of tornado-flattened Pilger of their town's motto, "the little town too tough to die." After touring the damage left from Monday's twister, Governor Dave Heineman said, "this is a tough little town and they're not gonna die." Two people were killed and over two dozen were injured when twin tornadoes roared through northeast Nebraska Monday afternoon. Heineman flew above the devastation in a helicopter and said it was even more tragic as he walked through town. It's estimated three-quarters of the town has been destroyed or severely damaged.

Meanwhile, Nebraska is getting federal help after tornadoes ripped through the town of Pilger. President Obama has signed a measure declaring a federal disaster in the area. That will free up federal money to help with cleanup.
