STAPLETON, Neb. - The National Weather Service says a late winter storm brought heavy snow to northern Nebraska and a tornado to west-central Nebraska's Logan County.

A Logan County dispatcher said Wednesday that he's seen no reports of damage or injuries from the twister that touched down Tuesday in a field just southwest of Stapleton.

Pea-size hail and heavy rain pelted the area around Mullen, which is 40 miles north-northwest of Stapleton.

The weather service says up to 8 inches of snow fell in a band from Gordon east to Ainsworth
