Giant Hail near Taylor, Nebraska :: High-Resolution Photos
A supercell thunderstorm produced giant hail on the afternoon of May 29, 2022 near Taylor, Nebraska. The largest of these "gorilla" hailstones ranged from 4 to 6 inches in diameter. Numerous examples of these hailstones were collected along Highway 183 in Loup County about 13 miles north of Taylor, and preserved in a cooler with dry ice for transport back home. A special lighting setup was constructed to photograph them with internal illumination. Some of the stones were cut in half for cross-sectional views, which show the concentric rings created as the hail grew in different regions within the storm. - Dan
