Pilger, NE has progress with clean up from tornado

It has been only 15 days since tornadoes ripped through Northeast Nebraska. Pilger, NE was 75% destroyed and volunteers have been busy cleaning up the destruction. Pictured are piles of the remains of homes and businesses. They separate the materials into piles of wood, metal and concrete. The debris site makes up about 5 acres in size. It is truly unbelievable; pictures only tell a portion of the reality.
