Severe damage after several hurricanes in the United States

Severe damage after several hurricanes in the United States

The Midwestern United States has been hit by several hurricanes. Experts also attribute the increase in natural disasters to the consequences of climate change.

Several tornadoes caused severe damage in the American Midwest. The city of Omaha and surrounding areas in the state of Nebraska were severely affected. Local media, citing police, reported that hundreds of homes were damaged there. Pictures and videos showed buildings of which only a mountain of rubble remained. There have also been reports of some injuries, but no deaths have been reported so far.

Electricity was cut off to thousands of homes. “We were very fortunate that the number of injuries was very small,” Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said. The alarm systems in the city, which has a population of about half a million, worked well. This saved people's lives.

In Lancaster County, about 70 people were rescued from an industrial building that collapsed during the storm, reports said. In its devastating path, the hurricane moved across the Missouri River into neighboring Iowa. There he caused extensive damage in the small town of Minden.

At least 60 violent tornadoes and tornadoes were reported in five states on Friday, CNN reported. According to the Meteorological Service, severe storms may continue until Sunday. Severe weather warnings were in effect for more than 50 million residents. In addition to storms and heavy rain, hail is also expected in some places.
