MORRILL, Neb. (AP) - A farmstead in the Nebraska Panhandle has been damaged by what may have been a short-lived tornado.

Shane Trompke told Scottsbluff radio station KNEB (https://bit.ly/1CkN6Di ) that outbuildings were destroyed and fences and power poles were knocked down around 5 p.m. Sunday at his wife’s grandparents’ property about a mile northwest of Morrill. The farm home was not damaged and no injuries have been reported.

National Weather Service meteorologist Becca Mazur said Monday that if a tornado was to blame, it didn’t stay on the ground very long.

Flooded highways and county roads also were reported Sunday in Scotts Bluff County, especially south of Mitchell. Mazur says the nearest confirmed rainfall total was nearly 1.2 inches reported in the past 24 hours at Scotts Bluff airport.
