PILGER, Nebraska — Hospital officials say at least one person is dead and 19 were injured in the tornadoes that ripped through northeast Nebraska, but some have been released and one patient has been transferred to an Omaha trauma center.

A spokeswoman for Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk said Monday that the hospital was treating 16 patients after the massive storm that destroyed more than half of Pilger. Some of those patients were later released, others went into surgery, and one was transferred to Omaha.

Providence Medical Center in nearby Wayne treated three tornado patients, including two who had lacerations. Providence Medical Center spokeswoman Sandy Bartling says two were released later Monday evening, and a third patient was in stable condition.
