SCOTTSBLUFF — A hailstorm that raced over a section of western Nebraska left behind broken windows, dented vehicles and battered crops.
The storm blew in from the west Thursday afternoon and had hail golfball-sized and bigger. The National Weather Service says there were unconfirmed reports of baseball-size hail.
Damage was reported throughout Scottsbluff, but no injuries.
Western Nebraska Regional Airport director Raul Aguallo says a Skywest plane ready for departure was hit by the hail and didn't take off.
