On Monday Evening BNVN Weather Paparazzi Tony Laubach was chasing tornadic storms that pummeled parts of the Nebraska panhandle. The storms brought several weak tornadoes, very strong winds, gigantic hail, and very heavy rains. In the video package that Tony shot, it opens up with various sky shots of turbulent, rotating clouds over the north side of Scottsbluff, Nebraska. The video transitions to during storm with very large hail falling and very strong winds blowing hailstones and leaves around while drivers were seeking shelter under a church overhang. The next few clips show Three (3") inch and larger hailstones against a ruler to show the size of the hail that was falling in the area. The video ends with footage of minor road flooding in Scottsbluff, NE along with a several grain silos that were blown across some railroad tracks along US-26 east of Scottsbluff, NE.
