June 9th, 2003 Northeast Nebraska Tornadoes

June 9 was to be one of those unforgettable days. Strong shortwave energy approaching from the west was to interact with a warm front boundary in northern Nebraska where rapidly increasing moisture would help provide the fuel needed to spark severe thunderstorms. By late afternoon a thunderstorm developed near Springview northwest of O’Neill. This storm went on to produce at least 3 confirmed tornadoes over the next several hours. Two of these tornadoes were photogenic with the final one north of O’Neill being a large dusty multivortex tornado. Pics of these tornadoes are shown below in the order that they occurred. Enjoy!
