At least one person has died and 15 more are in critical condition after a pair of apparent tornadoes swept through Nebraska today.

At least six others were treated for less-serious injuries. But a spokeswoman at a medical facility in Norfolk says they're expecting "many more" patients hurt in the storm.

The city of Pilger was shut down to everyone but emergency personnel in the face of the storms. The governor's office says damage has been reported in Pilger and at least three other towns.
