STELLA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say two tornado sightings have been reported in southeast Nebraska.

The National Weather Service says the first report came in a little before 7:45 p.m. Tuesday. The report says the tornado was spotted about a mile south-southwest of Dawson. The second report was received a little before 8:10 p.m. It says a twister was seen about a mile north of Stella.

It’s unclear whether the sightings were of the same tornado or were of two formations from the same storm moving north-northeast.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The weather service also reported 1-inch hail (2.5 centimeters) about 5 miles (8 kilometers) east-southeast of Auburn.
