Violent thunderstorms produced tornadoes on Sunday across Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa.
The system responsible for the tornadoes also brought at least 2 feet of snow to parts of Colorado.
On the severe side of the system, one reported tornado touched down at Sutton, Nebraska, with no significant injuries reported.
A grain bin was blown down and a feed mill was severely damaged during the storm's widespread damage between Saronville and Sutton, the National Weather Service at Hastings, Nebraska, said. Utility poles were downed in a three-mile area.
Tornadoes also touched down near McPherson, Kansas; Nickerson, Kansas; Sheldon, Iowa; Rensselaer, Indiana; and Friend, Nebraska.
We will be sending out a couple of damage survey teams on Monday across the area, details likely not available until late in the day.— NWS Omaha (@NWSOmaha) May 12, 2014
The storms also cut off electricity for thousands of customers across the Plains. More than 20,000 Omaha-area customers also were without electricity at one point after the storms.
Wind gusts over 80 mph and hail the size of baseballs were also reported from the storms.
Flash flooding also caused problems across the region with up to 2.75 inches of rain reported in two hours in Akron, Indiana, according to an NWS spotter.
