A major hail storm rolled through Nebraska on Friday leaving a trail of damage in its wake. The Tecumseh hail storm also brought strong winds and lightning lit up the area around Tecumseh and Auburn starting around 11:30am. Local news outlets reported wind gusts of up to 60 mph!
60mph gusts with this one and potential 1” hail. Tecumseh and auburn areas heads up as it moves east https://t.co/EniLUju6Vv— Rusty Lord WOWT (@RustyLord) June 11, 2021
The Tecumseh hail storm was a doozie. Reports of “golf ball size hail” were common throughout the day. Other reports mentioned hail the size of “limes” falling in the Auburn area south of Omaha.
Hail this large will absolutely do damage to virtually any roof you can imagine. If you live in the Tecumseh or Auburn areas, there’s a good chance that your roof suffered hail damage.
We urge you to contact AGR Roofing & Construction for a free roof inspection to discover the full extent of the damage.

This is the kind of hail that batters roofs. Hail damage to your roof could lead to roof leaks, and worse if not remedied soon. If you live in the Tecumseh or Auburn area, there is a very strong chance that you have hail damage. We encourage you to learn about the tell-tale signs of hail damage and then give us a call.
The Tecumseh hail storm continued to move through Nebraska throughout the day with every kind of severe weather imaginable. Reports of tornadoes, strong wind gusts, and lightning peppered Twitter throughout the day. Matt Serwe of KETV reported tornado warnings between Du Bois and Salem.
Twitter users all the way up to Omaha posted photos and videos of the hail storm.

Tecumseh Hail Storm Damage – What To Look For
If you live in the storm path, it’s almost a guarantee that your home took some damage even if it looks fine at first glance. Ignoring the possibility of damage could lead to roof leaks which cause mold, damage to electric systems, and even ceiling failure!
The trained experts at AGR Roofing & Construction are here to help with your roof repair and roof replacement needs!
When you’re walking around your home, here are a few things to look for:
- Texture or color change spots on shingles
- These spots could be as small as a dime or as big as a golf ball, much like hail.
- Roof/Shingle granules in your gutter
- The granules are there to protect your roof shingles from damaging UV rays. If they’re falling off, that’s an issue.
- Missing or loose shingles
- Missing or lifted shingles will lead to leaks 100% of the time. You need roof repair or maybe even roof replacement.
- Dented flashing or vents
- These areas are often hit hardest from a hail storm
- Dents on your windows, gutters, and siding
- These can be hard to see to the untrained eye, but here’s an industry trick. Take a piece of chalk and rub it over any areas where you think hail hit. You’ll be able to clearly see the dents after doing this.
