The National Weather Service confirmed seven tornadoes swept through eastern Nebraska on March 23.

Tornadoes came on that day back in 1913, but the outcome was much different. They made for the most deadly tornadoes in Nebraska's history.

They amounted to more than two dozen deaths after hitting Otoe, Burt and Saunders counties on that Easter Sunday.

The storms ripped their way through Sarpy County, killing seven before striking Omaha. There, 103 people died, 800 homes were destroyed and another 2,000 homes were damaged.
