LDN -- Top Stories


Curly, the Lincoln Bonanza Restaurant mascot. lies on his side in front of the restaurant this morning following last night's severe storms.

However, that is only half the story. According to video posted last night on Facebook, the little steer was blown into the McDonald's parking lot during the high wind event. In the video, several brave folks went out and rescued Curly, dragging him by hand back onto the Bonanza property.

Lincoln Fire Chief Mark Miller urges citizens to be aware of downed lines, especially as the power is being restored, what was a dead line with no power may become live.

Stay away from all downed lines and call 911 to report it.

Also, as further storms come through, DO NOT drive through standing water. There could be power poles or active electrical lines hidden from view.
