Wisner-Pilger schools superintendent Chad Boyer is in the tornado-leveled northeast Nebraska town of Pilger, looking to assess the damage done to Wisner-Pilger Public School's middle school.

Boyer was among those lined up Tuesday morning on a highway just outside Pilger, which was devastated Monday afternoon by twin tornadoes that killed two people.

Officials said late Monday that the school is likely beyond repair.

Tuesday morning, Boyer sat behind the wheel of a truck pulling a small utility trailer in the line to get into town. His plan is to salvage what he can from the school.

Boyer says he's just grateful the tornadoes didn't hit while classes were in session.
