I found this on "You Tube." I didn't steal it.
The shelf cloud is enormous and both all the tornadoes were on the ground for an extended period of time.

The Weather Channel "US 24 Hour Temperature Change Map."
Does everyone know where Nebraska is on the map?
The temperature in the region of Nebraska are completely ridiculous. The temperature change in 24 hours in the region ranged from -24 to + 18. Why wouldn't there be extreme weather?
Below is the current wind map.

The Weather Channel "US Departure from Normal Highs"
What else does anyone need to know. When west meets midwest the picture is obvious. The area between the blue negative and the yellow positive is nearly neutral. "Heat Transfer" between the two systems. And the wind map above shows the turbulence northeast of Denver where the mixing occurs. Directly over Nebraska.

UNISYS Infrared Satellite of the North and West Hemisphere (click here for 12 hour loop - thank you)
I am not promoting a product, but, this is a new experience for Nebraska, for the most part. The local stations might want to demonstrate to folks what a NOAA radio is and what it is not. They need to purchase the right kind and know they are hearing official broadcasts.
Springfield 96200 7 Channel Portable NOAA Weather Radio provides current weather conditions, forecasts, severe weather warnings and warnings from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and local emergency management officials. Other features include a telescoping antenna, clock, AM/FM radio, an ultra bright LED flashlight and battery backup. The small size of the 96200 makes it great for travel, camping, boating, sporting events, and more.
This one sells for about $24.00. It is the basic radio that can be carried on tractors if there is no such radio already installed. I am sure many stores in the local vicinity would be more than happy to stock some if they don't already. I wouldn't wait for shipping. People need them now.
