    As the second-consecutive day of severe storms unfolded across the Plains and Midwest on Tuesday, more twisters took form, barreling through Nebraska, Michigan, South Dakota, Montana, Iowa and even parts of Canada.

    Following a tornado that led to catastrophic damage to the town of Pilger, Nebraska, on Monday, June 16, a massive rain-wrapped tornado swept through the Nebraskan town of Coleridge on Tuesday night.

    Farther north in Canada, an unusual circumstance transpired as a tornado rolled through Angus, Ontario, Tuesday night.

    Additional tornadoes were also reported in Whitman, Montana; Hartington, Nebraska; and Camp Crook, South Dakota.
