Powerful thunderstorms that spun off several tornadoes as they moved across the state have caused damage in several eastern Nebraska towns and across the rural areas between them.

Gov. Dave Heineman traveled to Beaver Crossing this morning to survey storm damage caused by last night’s severe storms.

The storms that developed in south-central Nebraska near Hastings Sunday afternoon damaged homes and businesses in Sutton, Garland, Cordova and Daykin. The storms also left nearly 17,000 utility customers without electricity Sunday evening.
