Big hail shatters windows, flattens Nebraska crops

Posted: Updated:

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Calls have gone out to glass and siding companies and insurance agents after a barrage of hail left a trail of broken windows, damaged houses and ravaged farm fields in parts of western and central Nebraska.

Hailstones as big as baseballs were reported in North Platte on Wednesday evening. The hail turned the ground around Lake Maloney into a sea of white.

Amy Sellers lives two miles northwest of Wellfleet, and she says her vehicles were damaged, a house window was broken and her siding took a beating.

But she told The North Platte Telegraph that she was "thankful it wasn't any worse than it was."

Heavy crop damage was reported in the Gibbon, Heartwell, North Loup and Ravenna areas.
