Severe Weather Continues For Third Day (PHOTOS)

July 3, 2014

Severe weather continued for a third day Wednesday as storms with high winds moved through Cleveland, Ohio into northwestern Pennsylvania. A tornado watch is in effect for the state line between North Dakota and South Dakota.

Severe weather struck eastern Nebraska on Monday and Tuesday evening, spawning tornadoes and killing at least two people, including a five-year-old.

The hardest-hit Monday afternoon was Pilger, Nebraska, which suffered catastrophic damage to homes and businesses all over the town. Cars were tossed like toys and trees were stripped of their bark – both signs of a devastating tornado.

Damage has also been reported in nearby towns, including Sioux Falls, South Dakota, which has been hit with widespread flooding after record rainfall, according to the Argus Leader.

The severe weather, including tornadoes, did not take a break on Tuesday. A dangerous supercell that rolled through northeastern Nebraska produced large, slow-moving tornadoes Tuesday night. Storm chasers spotted a large wedge tornado near Coleridge, Nebraska.

Photos of the storms and subsequent damage are above, and for more information, be sure to check our state-by-state rundown and track the severe storms as they flare up.

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions.
