The National Weather Service confirms two tornadoes touched down in northeast Nebraska, and several spotted tornadoes have been reported near Bennet, southeast of Lincoln.

Steve Carmel, in the service's North Platte office, says the first touched down at 1:45 p.m. Monday about nine miles south of Brownlee. It was on the ground for about two minutes.

Carmel says the second tornado was reported eight miles north of O'Neill just before 3:30 p.m. There were reports of downed power lines in the area.

Forecasters posted a tornado watch Monday for much of eastern Nebraska while the western end of the state reeled from a last wintry blast.
