Beaver Crossing Begins Clean-Up | Volunteers Invited To Help

By  | 

There was a lot of noise in small towns throughout Nebraska Monday. After tornadoes swept through parts of the state on Mother's Day, people are starting to recover and do their part to clean.

10/11's Sean Viale went to Beaver Crossing to see the damage. He said several roofs are missing from houses, as well as some cars with crushed roofs. Trees are twisted and people are being kept out of areas that are deemed too dangerous.

The Emergency Volunteer Center closed at noon because many families who were displaced by the tornadoes have found a safe place to stay with either family or friends.

Arrive between 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Old Gymnasium in Utica at 4th and F Streets.

This center will be used to register and assign any volunteers willing to assist with general cleanup following the tornado in the Beaver Crossing/Cordova area.

To volunteer, you must be at least 19 years old.
For those interested in volunteering, please bring or wear the following:

· Driver’s License or other government photo I.D.
· Boots or sturdy leather shoes (No tennis shoes, flip flops or sandals)
· Long pants
· Gloves
· Hats
· Sunscreen
· Appropriate clothing to work outdoors
· If available, safety glasses and/or ear protection.
