Severe storms with small tornadoes pushed across Nebraska on Monday bringing extremely large hail, heavy rains, wind, and small tornadoes.
BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach was on the storms as they moved in from the southwest toward Atkinson, NE. The video he shot for this story includes a long funnel snaking out from the storm trying to become a tornado. Then point of view footage while driving in hail up to 4 inches in diameter falling onto the highway on the east side of Atkinson, NE before escaping the hail storm back to the west. Tony shows the camera what several of the hail stones looked like just minutes after falling as they started to melt.
