BEATRICE, Nebraska — Two tornado sightings have been reported in southeast Nebraska but remain unconfirmed.

The National Weather Service says a member of law enforcement reported a twister crossing U.S. Highway 77 north of Cortland around 8:25 p.m. Sunday. No injuries were reported.

A storm chaser reported a tornado about two miles northeast of Adams in Gage County 10 minutes later. It's not clear whether the reports were about the same tornado. The weather service says the sightings have not been confirmed.

The service also says Sunday's storms brought 2-inch hail to Lancaster, Gage and Johnson counties. Barn roofs were dented and fields of strawberries were damaged at Roca Berry Farm, southwest of Roca.

Forecasters say storms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds are expected to hit the area Monday evening.
