Several rounds of large hail and damaging winds have destroyed some crops across a pair of states in the Great Plains.

Southwest Nebraska rancher Logan Pribbeno tells Brownfield his corn crop that’s about an hour from Colorado missed the brunt of a recent storm.  “It took the top-end yield off, maybe 5 percent yield reduction. It’s pretty spotty.  There are some guys that have more significant hail damage than that.”  

And, he says, there was some minor flooding in June.
