Family of 11 Gets New Home Following May 11 Tornado

Posted: Updated:
UTICA, Neb. (AP) — An eastern Nebraska family of 11 has found a new home after a tornado destroyed their old one two weeks ago.

Mitch and Betty Nisly's bank approved the family for a home loan last week. Their new home is in Utica, about 12 miles north of Beaver Crossing, which was struck by a tornado on May 11.

The storm also crushed the family's 12-passenger van.

Authorities say 17 tornadoes were reported in Nebraska that day. Beaver Crossing was hardest-hit, with 16 houses damaged.

Since the tornado, the family had been living in a three-bedroom house owned by the Utica United Methodist Church, and sleeping on air mattresses. The family also received donations of clothes, blankets, furniture and gift certificates.
