Wakefield, NE farms hit hard by tornado


Several farms in Wakefield, Nebraska were hit by the storms Monday.

The Slama family remodeled their home and farm over eight years, and just moved in six months ago.

Now, everything is in ruins.

The family was home at the time of the storm, and watched the tornado come at them from the front porch, before taking cover.

"My dad said that there was dirt coming straight at us, and then saw debris coming, and said, 'get in the basement right now," Logan Slama, Wakefield, NE said.

The family has a lot of cleaning up to do, but Darcy Slama says that at the end of the day, she's just glad her family made it through safely.

"Everything is just stuff. I have my boys, and my husband, I've got family over here already. It's just stuff. It's stuff," Darcy Slama said.

If you're available to help, Dixon County Emergency Management needs you.

They're asking anyone willing and able to help clean up to meet Tuesday morning at the Wakefield Fire Hall at 11 a.m.

Those farmers with crop damage can also meet there at 11 a.m. to get crop insurance questions answered.
