The brother of a girl killed in the Pilger tornado says his mother is in a medically induced coma in Omaha.
Cody Murphree released a statement Tuesday saying his mother, 42-year-old Kandi Murphree, was being treated after the tornado destroyed their home in Pilger. His sister, 5-year-old Calista Dixon, was one of two people killed in the storm.
The statement says the tornado did not seriously harm Cody Murphree or his 4-year-old sister, who was not identified. The statement was released through his employer, Heritage Homes of Nebraska in Wayne.
No funeral arrangements have been made for Calista Dixon. The statement says donations are needed for girl's clothing and men's clothing, non-perishable food items and possible help with housing for the two surviving siblings.
