Local News

Its been 5 years since a devastating tornado tore through Wayne, Nebraska.

On October 4, 2013, there were 22 tornadoes that tore through parts of Nebraska, but Wayne was the hit hard.

An EF 4 tornado rolled into the southeast side of town packing winds up to 170 miles per hour.

There was no loss of life, but millions in damages. The storm took out an airport, baseball field, and nearly 50 percent of Wayne’s business park. 

All but one of the damaged businesses have since rebuilt.
