Roofs, skylights, cars and windshields were damaged Tuesday evening as hail pummeled the western Omaha metro area.
The hail damage in Sarpy and Douglas Counties was but one part of a much larger storm that shut down travel in western Nebraska and damaged the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus. The closure of Interstate 80 was extended at mid-morning to include the stretch from Kearney to the Wyoming border.
