Tuesday’s storm swept through Madison County Nebraska with Tennis to Baseball size hail hammering the Norfolk area. Madison County Farm Service Agency Director Randy Guill says most of the heavier and larger hail was in Norfolk and the Northern part of the county with pea to marble size hail in the Battle Creek area. He says there was property and building damage while they’re still assessing fields for potential crop damage.
Guill says the storm left water standing in some fields in the county although he expects those crops to recover from that.
He expects some farmers to replant and it’s not too late to do that if necessary.
Guill says he’ll survey the damage this morning and then file a flash report.
