Early reporting indicates widespread businesses have been crippled and require emergency roof repair. RestoreMasters already has commercial roof inspection services professionals in the field to expedite a commercial roof inspection request.

In Seward, massive hailstone strikes nearly destroyed businesses.

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.

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.

Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. If roof leaks are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And insurance companies can require you to get a claim in before their deadline.
