High winds, either from a tornado or straight-line thunderstorm gusts, blew the roof off a building owned by Homestead Glass, at that location. The winds knocked down power poles and lines, rolled a small storage building, and tore the roof from the porch of a home along the west side of LaSalle Street.
Sherry Davis, of Beatrice says the high winds hit her son’s house.

Davis says the canopy over a rear porch on her son’s home, was ripped away in the strong winds.

One man who lives in the area told KWBE he believes he saw a funnel along West Mary Street last night, when the damage was done. South LaSalle Street south of West Court remained closed, Saturday, because of the downed power equipment and debris.
