SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - A hailstorm that raced over a section of western Nebraska left behind broken windows, dented vehicles and battered crops.

The storm blew in from the west Thursday afternoon and loosed hailstones reported at 2 inches in diameter or bigger. The National Weather Service says there were unconfirmed reports of baseball-size hail.

Damage was reported throughout Scottsbluff, but no injuries.

Western Nebraska Regional Airport director Raul Aguallo said a Skywest plane loaded for departure was hit by the hail and didn't take off.
