Yutan Tornado - March 23, 1913

Most Nebraskans remember the devastating tornado outbreak of March 23, 1913, for the destruction it wrought in Omaha, but there were other communities devastated by the Easter Sunday Tornado. One such community was Yutan, a city in Saunders County with a population of around 350. The pictures below are examples of some of the devastation that community saw.
