PILGER, Neb. (AP) — Authorities have identified a 74-year-old man killed by one of the tornadoes that swept through northeast Nebraska.

The Cuming County sheriff's office says David A. Herout, of Clarkson, Nebraska, died after his vehicle left the roadway during the storm.

Officials say Herout was ejected from the vehicle around 4:50 p.m. on a county road approximately 2.5 miles east of Pilger. Cuming County officials are still investigating.

The National Weather Service says four tornadoes appear to have hit the region on Monday night, including one that destroyed most of the town of Pilger.

One of the tornadoes also killed a 5-year-old girl in Pilger. The girl has not been identified.
