A local high wind, tornado, and hailstorm damage map shows multiple overlapping storm cells stretching from east of Kearney along I-80 to Lincoln. The yellow areas point to hail up to 1.25 inches peppering communities. The light orange indicates ice up to 1.75 inches made landfall. The dark orange swaths indicate hailstones up to 2.5 inches in diameter caused significant roof damage. The light and dark gray sections are where neighborhoods and business districts experienced high wind and tornado roof damage.
Storm images and videos have been posted to social media, by residents and news centers.
Taylor, NE hailstone cross-sections. Was surprised to see almost no homogeneity in internal ring patterns, nearly all stones were different. Some had numerous thin layers, some had only 2 or 3 thicker layers. Full Gallery: https://t.co/SZAYUgrvWU #hail pic.twitter.com/Dx0bitJlq1— Dan Robinson (@stormhighwaycom) June 14, 2022

RestoreMasters sent emergency roof repair and commercial building inspection experts to Beatrice, NE, after a storm on June 11, 2022.
Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems. Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour. The severity of roof damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and the quality of original roof installation.
