 In addition to the tornado near Cook, Strayhorn says the National Weather Service has confirmed his initial suspicion that another tornado touched down in Johnson County.   (play audio   :30)
 Strayhorn says public safety remains a concern this morning, with several large branches hanging over a playground in Sterling and the gates to the park where the press box was destroyed locked as workers clear out the debris.
 Another EF-0 tornado was confirmed about three miles southwest of Talmage in Otoe County that was on the ground for approximately 3.75 miles, with peak winds of 70-to-85 miles-per-hour.  That storm overturned a few irrigation pivots and damaged a few trees and outbuildings.
 An EF-1 tornado touched down northwest of Nebraska City that damaged homes and caused damage to trees and a machine shed the Kimmel Orchard and Vineyard.
 Weather Service personnel were expected to continue their assessment of the storm damage today (Monday).
