Two huge tornadoes connected in Nebraska, USA. They evacuated local residents. Half of one town received heavy damage. The tornadoes destroyed a few farms, too. At least one person died. Sixteen people were injured.

The tornadoes were packed with winds of up to 165 miles per hour (266 kilometres per hour).

Nebraska declared a state of emergency officially. Police closed all roads to the damaged area.

Difficult words: huge (big), connect (come together), packed with (full of), declare (to officially say something).
