In new findings released today, the tornado near Beaver Creek, Nebraska had wind speeds approximately 140 miles per hour and was about a mile and a half wide. Tornadoes near Raymond and Garland were rated as EF-2 with wind speeds up to 115 miles per hour. Others near Cordova, Daykin, and Malcolm were rated EF-1 tornadoes with peak wind speeds around 90 miles per hour.

These new findings are in addition to the earlier reports on two EF-1 tornadoes near Elkhorn. This brings the total number of twisters from Sunday's storms up to eight. The National Weather Service is expected to release more information on several of the tornadoes on Wednesday. You can trust WOWT 6 News to bring you the latest details as they become available.
