Hallam, Nebraska; Lancaster County
On May 22, 2004, one of the largest tornadoes in Nebraska history struck the Lancaster County town of Hallam. The 2.5 mile-wide F4 twister struck in the evening, killing a 73-year-old woman and injuring 38 others. Tornadoes stayed on the ground from 7:30 p.m. to 9:10 p.m., with the Hallam tornado carving out a 52-mile path. That storm system spawned 19 confirmed tornadoes, leveling 158 homes and damaging dozens of others. Gage, Saline, Lancaster and Cass counties were designated federal disaster areas.
The Village of Hallam Board is committed to rebuilding this great community after the devastation of May 22, 2004. Thank you to all who have helped us move towards a bright future for Hallam, The Little Town With A Big Heart, and it’s Residents!
