Friday storms powering through Nebraska

Heavy storms are rolling through Nebraska today.

Many cities are under severe thunderstorm warnings and watches.

The National Weather Service says the most severe line of storms is near Johnson County, about 35 miles east of Beatrice. Storms are bringing heavy rainfall, even up to an inch per hour, as well as wind gusts reaching 60 miles per hour.

The Weather Service says minor flooding is possible across southeast Nebraska.

Storms began pelting Nebraska as early as Thursday night, starting in the northwestern quadrant of the state and powering into northeast Nebraska and the Platte Valley by early Friday morning.
