Dual tornados level Nebraska town [Video]

Two tornadoes touched down yesterday and devastated the Nebraska town of Pilger, killing a 5-year-old and injuring 19 others. StormChasingVideo.com published this incredible footage of the two funnels, which came within a mile of one another as they demolished the community of 350.

Pilger was completely evacuated during the storm, which reportedly "completely leveled" at least half of it. Nebraska State Patrol closed all roads into the area. Residents gathered this morning at a nearby staging area, according to Fox News, and the state governor, Dave Heineman, declared a state of emergency. The National Guard is to help local emergency services and assist in the cleanup operation.
