STANTON, Neb. (AP) - The severe thunderstorms that spawned large hail and strong winds earlier this month left a lasting mark on many Nebraska communities.

Aaron Volkman tells the Norfolk Daily News (https://bit.ly/1kEdQyR ) it will take weeks or even months to repair all the damage to his rural home near Stanton.

The June 3 storms also caused significant hail damage in Blair, Fort Calhoun, Uehling and Craig, Nebraska, and in the western Iowa town of Missouri Valley.

The hail shredded the siding on the north and west sides of Volkman’s home. Several windows were shattered and the roof had holes in it.

Volkman says a contractor estimated that the repairs will cost $54,000 although insurance will cover the bill.
