Severe storms erupted across central Nebraska Wednesday afternoon prompting a severe thunderstorm watch and numerous warnings. Some storms did produce hail, but high winds and flooding rains were the biggest threats. Storms east of North Platte prompted a flash flood warning as up to 3-inches of rain fell. One such area was the I-80 town of Cozad that took a direct hit from a severe-warned storm. Some pea-sized hail fell, but the storm dumped over 2-inches of rain in about 30 minutes and lead to numerous streets in town becoming flooded.
