Pilger continues to rebuild after storms


Progress is continuing as one Siouxland community is continuing to pick up the pieces following an EF4 tornado strike nearly two weeks ago.

Pilger, Nebraska residents were updated Saturday on the ongoing rebuilding and recovery process following the June 16th EF4 tornado strike.

Stanton County Sheriff Mike Unger said that many essential services have been restored

“The boil alert has been lifted. You can drink the Pilger water, we do ask that you run water from each tap for three to five minutes to flush out the line as a precautionary measure.”

Unger also said that despite the tornado strike, one Pilger tradition will continue this summer.

“Pilger Fire and Rescue met this morning and have voted to hold their annual Pilger Day’s BBQ and Street dance. It will just be relocated to the ball park area.”

Pilger Days will take place July 18th through the 20th.

Members of the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources were also on hand to answer any questions residents had when it came to the ongoing rebuilding process.

The Wisner-Pilger Schools District Board of Education is holding a special meeting Monday night to discuss school demolition and construction projects in preparation for the 2014-15 school year.
