Baseball-sized hail damage cars and homes in Beatrice, SE Nebraska (videos and pictures)


That’s REALLY big and damaging hail as vicious storms formed Saturday afternoon and dropped 2-3.75″ hail with confirmed tornadoes in portions of SE Nebraska.

Hail the size of a baseball, extreme wind, and torrential rains have left residents of southeast Nebraska picking up these pieces. Here in Beatrice, hail damaged vehicles, downed tree limbs, and busy roofing businesses were the story on Sunday.

In the early evening on Saturday, warnings from the National Weather Service began to file in and the weather began to ramp up. Ashlynn Guzman was in town to watch it all unfold.

It was really windy, kind of dark, raining and then just hail… Out of nowhere,” Guzman said. “Then it just continuously got bigger.

All of Gage County, and others in the area, were under a long tornado warning and just before 5:30, law enforcement confirmed a tornado near Wymore, about a dozen miles south of Beatrice. At the time of the storm, Guzman’s vehicle was parked outdoors in an apartment complex in east Beatrice. It suffered permanent damage.

Best hail protection around

It hurt my heart a little bit… I just got it about six months ago,” Guzman said. “It is totaled, but I will get a new car.

Guzman’s vehicle suffered massive windshield cracks, dents to the hood and roof, a broken mirror, and even a busted rear window. One man told News Channel Nebraska he was DoorDashing during the storm when hail broke his windshield. He said he believed golf balls sized hail was average.

Rachyl Nimitch was away from town when the storm hit and came home to the heavy damage. Sunday, she and her family were cleaning up.

There were huge branches all over, we’re just now picking up all the leaves,” Nimitch said. “We have had roofing estimators at our house… It’s horrible.

Those roofing estimators were kept busy on Sunday, including Dion Hancock, the owner of Roof Guard in Sterling.

These roofs are pretty beat up… It’s obvious this was some big hail,” Hancock said. “A lot of your gutters and soft metals are damaged.

Hancock said Roof Guard spent their day on roofs, making estimates, and performing quick repairs to limit further damage.

  1. Weather modification by chemical ice nucleation and by ground based and satellite radiation technology that heats up the metals sprayed into the stratosphere thus steering high and low pressure systems and cloud cover wherever they want it to go (or stay). We live in the last days of the age of Grace according to the preserved, written word of God, the 1611 Authorized King James Bible. (all others are CHANGED and sold on the world market for filthy lucre; another end times effort of the wicked principalities and powers to water down the potency of God’s written word) Get one and read starting in the book of Romans. Before you begin, go somewhere quiet and ask God (on your knees; there is something about submission which is really effective) to show you the Truth! If you are sincere in your heart, He will show you your sins, you will be truly sorry for them and you will ask for forgiveness of ALL sins. You will understand and believe that Jesus Christ is God in the Flesh of a Man who came for the purpose of giving His Life in the Flesh willingly as THE Sacrifice for the sins of all men for all time. He will put a new spirit in you and you will be as John 3:16 says, born again; saved from your sins. Seek God’s Will for your life. He will show you and you will begin to build up for yourself treasures in Heaven. But you had better hurry. The unsaved will not be removed before God’s wrath is poured out, all born again Christians will be removed (and all young children). After the Rapture, things will get worse than the time of the Flood of Noah. Are you saved?

    • AMEN Brother. Could not have said that better myself.
      Say YES to CHRIST, HE is the way, the truth and the life, period.

  2. Roofing, rain gutters, windshield repair, Paintless dent repair workers will all be busy. Hope you have good workers in your town.

    We have useless welfare bums (that don’t work) in our super small town. Didn’t use to be that way. Good folks move or die, and then riff raff moves in.

    Some of those hailstones were very large, some in the videos were medium large. Big enough to break windshields though.
