(Pilger, NE) -- Nebraska's governor is urging the people of tornado-flattened Pilger to live up to their town's motto, "the little town too tough to die." Governor Dave Heineman flew over the devastation yesterday said it was even more tragic as he walked through town. Two people were killed and more than two dozen were injured when twin tornadoes roared through northeast Nebraska Monday afternoon. It's estimated three-quarters of Pilger has been destroyed or severely damaged.
