PILGER, Nebraska (AP) - A second death has been linked to the storm that brought twin tornadoes to a tiny farming town in northeastern Nebraska yesterday.

Sheriff's officials had earlier said a 5-year-old girl was killed in the town of Pilger. They now say a motorist also died in a single-vehicle accident near the town as the storm pounded the area.

The National Weather Service says the twin twisters touched down within roughly a mile of each other.

Pilger was evacuated for the night and roads were closed by state police. Some residents were taken to a shelter at a school in a nearby town.
