Storms, Tornadoes May Sweep South Dakota, Nebraska

May 26 (Bloomberg) -- Severe thunderstorms and possibly tornadoes may strike parts of South Dakota and Nebraska this week, according to the U.S. Storm Prediction Center.

As many as 75,398 people live in the area, which includes Pierre, South Dakota, the state’s capital, where storms are expected to strike on May 29, the center said.

“It appears the most probable concentration for severe -- including possibly tornadic storms -- will be in the eastern part of the high Plains,” according to a bulletin from the in Norman, Oklahoma-based center, which is part of the National Weather Service.

Last week, an EF-5 tornado, the strongest on the six-step Enhanced Fujita Scale, ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, killing 24 people, including 10 children, and destroying at least 1,300 homes. The storm was part of a larger system of severe weather that spawned tornadoes from Texas to New England, as well as thunder and hail storms.
