Lincoln Walloped By Severe Thunderstorms

A tornadic thunderstorm did a lot of damage in Lincoln Sunday evening. .

A fast moving storm moved through the southwest portion of the city around 5:30, destroying an ice cream shop near Highway 77 and Van Dorn, damaging a plane at the airport and downing trees.

Winds reached in excess of 100-miles-per-hour and large hail was reported with the storm. There have been no reports of injuries. The national weather service will be in Lincoln to survey damage and determine if there were one or more tornadoes that touched down.

In the meantime, damage is tallied and mounds of debris sit in the storm’s wake. C&L Dairy Sweet is a family-owned business that was in the path of the storm. Chris Kliment and her two daughters were working inside when the weather turned violent.

Kilment’s daughter, Tiffany Blackwell told 6 News, “We literally got into the cellar and we had to hold the door down to keep it down and it was probably like two minutes which actually felt like a really long time."
