ball-sized hail hit portions of the Omaha, Neb., area Tuesday
evening, auto glass shops are seeing some uptick in business today.
"Usually, we would have been inundated by now," says
Rich Lutton, owner of Metro Glass in Omaha. "We've had a couple
of people with back glasses in their vehicles which were broke out
due to the storm.
"We'll get some calls for broken-out glass," he continues.
"I live in Western Omaha and I witnessed pea-sized hail and
there have been reports of golf ball-sized hail in certain areas.
In some areas there was quarter-sized hail and some an inch-deep,
but the bigger stuff was rare."
Lutton says the lack of bad storms last year had a big impact on
"Last year was the worst year we ever had and this was due
to the drought," he explains. "There was no weather of
any kind, including snow and bad weather. At least this year there
has been some snow. It could be a decent year for business."
Meanwhile, Don Beed of Fas-Break Auto Glass in Fremont, Neb., describes
the hail that hit the area as as well.
"All we received was pea-sized hail. We haven't seen a lot
of calls yet. But we've heard of the stuff in Omaha," Beed
Holly Foukup of Binswanger Glass in Lincoln, Neb., says the hail
storm didn't get that far, but she's seen the reports of damage
in other areas.
