Lucas Man Killed In Nebraska Storm

KSAL StaffAugust 10, 2015

A southwest Nebraska sheriff says a Kansas man was killed when a storm tossed his recreational vehicle.

Hitchcock County Sheriff Bryan Leggott says 38-year-old Heath Erbert died when his fifth-wheel RV was picked up and slammed back to the ground in Stratton during Friday night’s storm.

Jan Sydow, who lived in a neighboring trailer, says Erbert was from Lucas, Kansas. Sydow says Erbert had been in Stratton for just a few weeks while working for a welding company in Trenton.

Region 15 emergency manager Patrick Gerdes says no other injuries have been reported. The storm temporarily left dozens of people without power.

The National Weather Service says the storm’s straight-line winds hit an estimated 110 mph.
