Astonishing Photos of Hail Damage in Blair, Nebraska

Astonishing Photos of Hail Damage in Blair, Nebraska by Mike Hollingshead

Earlier this week storm chaser and photographer Mike Hollingshead was following a massive storm in Nebraska in hopes of photographing a tornado, but instead stumbled upon a cataclysmic hail storm. He shot these jaw-dropping photos of hail damage in the small town of Blair, Nebraska. According to Hollingshead, there where hailstones the size of grapefruits lying on the ground. A local car dealership was particularly badly hit. Hollingshead has much more storm photography on his website where he also sells prints. The Weather Channel has more on the storm and its aftermath.
