Damaging hail in Goshen County from Friday storms

Storm near Potter courtesy of Corelea Schledewitz

Severe weather rolled across the high plains and eastern rockies
yesterday. Numerous reports of hail from quarter inch to baseball
size was reported, and there were at least three confirmed reports of tornadoes.

Damaging hail and in some cases heavy rain was reported on a scattered
basis throughout the region--too numerous to report--but
hail to the size of baseballs was reported 4 miles north of
Torrington in Goshen County, and 9 miles east of Harrisburg in Banner County.

Goshen County Emergency Management Director Shelley Kirchhefer says there was significant vehicle damage, with reports of windshields and windows broken and body damage to cars. Kirchhefer said there were probably some roofs damaged as well, but there were no other reports of damage to homes.

A trained spotter reported a tornado on the ground south of Potter
in Cheyenne County at 3 o clock. An hour later, a tornado was
confirmed 5 miles north of Sidney, we also had a report of a
tornado 5 miles south of Gordon in Sheridan County around 6:30,
damage to a center pivot system, 6 power poles pulled down and
crop damage was reported.



The region will once again be under the gun for severe weather
today (Saturday) and to a lesser extent on Sunday.
