May 6, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A possible tornado demolished a Lincoln food stand shortly after workers at the business scrambled into a storm cellar.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports the storm hit about 6 p.m. Sunday and flattened the C & L Dairy Sweet, just after workers sought safety, leaving a cheeseburger on a grill.

The storm also damaged the roof of a Lincoln motorcycle dealership, part of a car wash and a plane at the Lincoln Airport. Electricity was knocked out to about 4,000 homes and businesses.

No injuries were reported.

A National Weather Service team will examine the damage and determine of the storm was a tornado or straight-line winds.
