Local Storm Reports
The National Weather Service in Omaha, Nebraska would like to know about any adverse weather you have experienced.  We are especially interested in hail .75" in diameter or larger, winds 58 mph or greater and/or wind damage, or any tornado occurrence.   We would also like to know about  funnel clouds, lightning damage, heavy snow, sleet or freezing rain, heavy rain and flooding. This information is extremely important and will be used for verification and training purposes so that we may provide more accurate warnings and forecasts in the future. With all of the technology that we now possess, your reliable storm reports still are perhaps our greatest asset.

Important Note
If you are experiencing hazardous weather right now, report it immediately to your local Police Department, Sheriff's Department, or State Police and ask them to relay the information to the National Weather Service in Omaha, Nebraska!
