Authorities said a small tornado briefly touched down about five miles southwest of Roswell. The National Weather Service said the combination of a cool air mass and strong winds aloft allowed short-lived funnel clouds to develop over much of eastern New Mexico.

ROSELAND, Neb. — Officials say a tornado has hit Roseland, a rural town of fewer than 250 people about eight miles southwest of Hastings.

Angela Pfannkuch, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Hastings, says the tornado hit at 4:22 p.m. Wednesday. She said her office learned of the tornado from the Adams County Emergency Management office. The weather service was sending someone to the town Wednesday to try to confirm that a tornado hit the area.

Dawna Whitcomb with the Adams County office said no serious injuries had been reported by 5 p.m. Her office was busy coordinating with the American Red Cross to help any households displaced by the tornado.

Whitcomb said she did not yet know whether the tornado had caused any serious damage to homes and buildings.
