Deadly twin twisters

Evacuated Residents of Pilger, Nebraska, may not have much to go back to today, when authorities are expected to allow them in to survey the damage and gather valuables that they may find. A storm with dual tornadoes tore through the tiny northeast Nebraska town of about 350 people, killing a 5-year-old and damaging more than half of the community's structures. The latest on Sunrise.

Hot and humid

Warm and muggy start today with temperatures starting out in the low to mid 70's across the tri-state. We will stay mostly sunny through the day with temperatures climbing into the low to mid 90's and heat index values near 100 through the afternoon.  Eric Garlick has all the details.

Blue Bridge blues

Drivers can expect some delays and lane closures on the Blue Bridge the next couple of days. Emily Busby is live at Sunrise with what you need to know.

Midnight Madness

Researching your family's history can be a difficult task, but Willard Library has a way to help you out this week.  Deanna Allbrittin is live at Sunrise with details on Midnight Madness.

So stay cool, and we'll see you on Sunrise.
