GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Severe weather swept across much of Nebraska Wednesday into Thursday morning.

Utility crews worked throughout the night to restore power to its customers.

Just before 5 a.m. Thursday, Southern Power said there were about 12 individuals without power from Doniphan and 12 north of Grand Island.

Crews from SPD worked to restore power in Hall, Hamilton and Merrick Counties. They said if you are still without power and have yet to report the outage, call 800-579-3019.

Just before midnight, Grand Island Police said high winds and heavy rain caused some areas of flooding and traffic signals to fail. They urge people to use caution for debris in the road as you start your morning.

While the Hall County Sheriff’s Department said storms across the county caused tree and other debris to be blown onto roads.

And in Hastings, there were areas with tree limbs down as well as power outages.

Adams County Emergency Manager Ron Pughes said on Twitter that stop lights were out on Burlington. He said to remember if you come upon a dark intersection, treat it as a four-way stop and always use caution.
