Intense rains, heavy hail and some flash flooding were the products of storms that pounded southwest Nebraska overnight.
The storms began to creep into Nebraska from Kansas just after 10pm Mountain Time Sunday night. Within an hour, the storms had grown and severe thunderstorm warnings went out for counties south of Interstate 80. Up to golf ball size hail was reported in some areas.
As the storms continued, they remained almost stationary over Chase and Hayes Counties, prompting flash flood warnings until 3am this morning. Imperial reported over three inches of rain last night.
More storms are expected this week, putting Nebraska’s rivers and waterways in danger of more flooding.
