Storms rolling through the state Sunday night into Monday morning spawned strong winds that took down power lines and trees in some parts of Nebraska.

According to storm reports from the National Weather Service, an old elevator blew across Highway 30. Officials have closed Highway 30 between roads 28 and 29 because tree debris is covering both lanes of the highway.

The Merrick County Sheriff Office said power lines are down and power is out in the towns of Clarks, Chapman, and Silver Creek.

The Furnas County Sheriff Office is reporting golf ball to baseball sized hail.

Furnas county also reported that there was a very large tree blown onto the road at the intersection of Hwy 6 and Hwy 34. That has been removed and traffic is back to normal there.

The town of Cambridge is reporting broken car windows from the hail.
