OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a tornado that skipped along a few blocks of northwest Omaha was rated EF1, packing winds of 86 through 110 mph.

The service says the tornado stayed on the ground for about eight blocks and seemed to bob up and down after it struck around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday. It toppled a few trees, damaged others and knocked down some fences before dissipating about four minutes later. No injuries have been reported.

Golf ball-size hail fell near Valley and other Douglas County spots.

Downpours accompanied the storms that developed Wednesday from the same system that brought rain Tuesday. The service has issued an alert for possible flooding along the Missouri River for Cass and Otoe counties. A flood warning was issued for Nemaha and Richardson counties.
