At least three homes were damaged by a tornado that unexpectedly touched down in Nebraska early Monday, lofting debris in the air and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

The tornado struck around 12:55 am, weather officials say, just outside Grand Island.

Several homes in Hall County were damaged by the cyclone, which was unexpectedly spawned by a line of severe storms that swept across the southwest and central part of the state.

The tornado saw multiple towns within the city's limits left without power, and was reportedly so powerful it launched debris in the air that was detected by radar.

Photos show some of the damage to homes hit by the unexpected whirlwind.

'Early damage assessment shows 3 homes in Hall County suffered damage from tonight's tornado south of Husker Hwy & east of S. Locust. No injuries,' the agency tweeted Monday morning, after the tornado had dissipated.

Power lines are also down in the area, officials said, adding the damage is still being assessed at this time.

Photos show some of the homes savaged by the tornado early Monday, with at least one house, located Between A and B road on 3rd road, seemingly destroyed.

Another house, located at 978 West Schimmer Drive, was also damaged, photos show, with the tempest downing trees and mangling a fence outside of the domicile.

A farm between Stuhr and Gunbarrel roads was also devastated by the storm, which also saw powerlines along Highway 34 and Gunbarrel Road downed, with photos showing debris strewn along the roadway.

Another home on S. Locust St. was also damaged by the storm, officials said.

Officials are telling citizens to avoid areas along Schimmer Drive and east of South Locust St as they assess the damages left by the storm.

Radar data recorded a overnight detected rotation that indicated winds early Monday were so strong, that debris was lofted in the air.

The National Weather Service in Hastings is assessing the damages as of early Monday morning.

So far, no injuries have been reported.
