Volunteers are helping North Platte residents clean up the tornado debris around the western Nebraska city.
Saturday, nearly 100 volunteers helped with the cleanup around North Platte.
The March 18 tornadoes hurt at least four people and damaged
homes, farm buildings and vehicles. The storms also derailed or
knocked over 31 railroad cars at Union Pacific's railyard.
Much of the clean-up effort Saturday focused on farm fields west of North Platte. They picked up enough insulation, wood and pieces of metal to fill five semitrailers with debris.
Volunteer Sally Hoaglund says she wanted to help with the cleanup because she knows it's a big job, and she feels fortunate that her home was spared in the storm.
