WAYNE, Neb. (KTIV) -

Wayne, Neb. mayor Ken Chamberlain continues to lead the city forward after an EF4 tornado swept through Wayne Friday evening.

With volunteers being allowed into the major damage zones for the first time today, Chamberlain said that they wouldn't focus on the businesses right away.

Instead, they started in the ditches alongside Highway 35 and the Logan Creek, where debris, insulation, and vehicles are lodged.

 City and county staff will be in charge of small groups of volunteers that are eager to help as the efforts progress.

"The response that I got from most of them is, 'we're excited to be out here, we've been chomping at the bit to get out here,'" said Chamberlain.

City officials, however, are continuing to keep some streets closed due to the ongoing clean-up efforts.
 
Summerfield Drive and Chiefs Way will be closed to thru traffic. Only people with a reason related to the clean-up will be allowed in the affected areas.
