Officials are still tallying the cost of the tornadoes that destroyed most of the town of Pilger, Nebraska, but it's expected to climb into the tens of millions of dollars.
The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency will send teams to the northeast Nebraska community this week to assess damage to roads, bridges and public buildings, such as the school and local fire department. Last week, teams started to tally the cost of private property damage not covered by insurance.
The June 16th tornadoes damaged 75 percent to 80 percent of Pilger, population about 350. A man and girl were killed.
The Nebraska National Guard has left town, but a spokeswoman for Gov. Dave Heineman says the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency and five other state agencies are still providing assistance to the area.
