Neligh, NE Wind Storm, Oct 1908

Severe Wind in Antelope.

NELIGH, Neb., Oct. 28.--A severe windstorm visited the northeast part of the county, doing considerable damage to property. In Willow township the storm was in the nature of a tornado but apparently was very narrow, not more than five or six rods wide, and covered but a small area of country. At. W. E. Bitney’s the large barn was moved from the foundation and badly wrecked and the outbuildings were blown down, shingles taken off the house and the chimneys blown over. At. J. R. and T. M. Nichol’s, a short distance away, outbuildings were also destroyed and the residence somewhat damaged. Other buildings in the neighborhood were uninjured.
