Tornado 05.17

Storm chaser Scott Nicholson captured this tornado near Stockville on video Friday night. 

Wherever dark clouds may scatter, storm chasers will gather. After meteorologists predicted violent storms throughout the Midwest this weekend, Friday evening's twisters did not disappoint.

Thunderstorms erupted throughout western and central Nebraska, and around 5:45 p.m. a tornado touched down near McCook, causing damage to at least one home. A little while later, as the storm moved northeast, two more tornadoes touched down near Farnam.

The surge of severe weather has attracted both amateur storm chasers as well as professionals.

The severe storms are expected to continue throughout the weekend, with thunderstorms likely in the Lincoln area Saturday evening, according to the National Weather Service.
