Columbus, NE~~Communities and volunteers from across the state are coming together in support of the town of Pilger that was devastated by an EF4 tornado Monday. The Columbus Police Department collected cases of bottle water on Tuesday and Wednesday morning to help in the relief effort.
Columbus Police Investigator Jaymee Levander says the amount of support was amazing as over 1500 cases of water were donated by area residents and businesses. Levander says the citizens of Columbus once again stepped up to help those in need.
