By Tyler Harris

Recently, parts of south-central Nebraska were hammered with high winds over 80 mph, heavy rainfall from 1 to 3 inches and hail. In its wake, the storm left pivots upended, corn and soybean fields ravaged by wind, downed trees and limbs, and damaged structures.

"We had almost close to 3 inches at the Husker Harvest Days show site,” says Jason Luebbe, host farmer at Husker Harvest Days near Grand Island, Neb. “Our wind-monitoring system showed we had 89-mile-an-hour winds. Rainfall was sporadic. Some rain gauges had 40/100, and some had 3 inches. The whole storm only lasted about one to one and a half hours."

However, Luebbe notes when it comes to damage, the HHD show site was lucky.
