At least 13 people were being treated for injuries in Wayne after a reported tornado struck the northeast Nebraska town.

A spokeswoman for Providence Medical Center in Wayne said Friday that one trauma patient was transported to another hospital, ABC affiliate KETV reports.

Seven injured people walked into the hospital for treatment, and five others were coming in by ambulance as a result of a possible auto accident west of town.

Witnesses reported that the tornado destroyed at least four homes and the city's softball complex. Several businesses were damaged.

A Nebraska Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman says people were trapped in a building in Wayne, and a hazardous material crew was dispatched to a gas leak at a supply company.

Other injuries were reported in Macy, but no fatalities.
