Whittington said the storm blew the roof off a local diner and destroyed three of his sheriff's department vehicles.
Wheat crop suffers
Wheat farmers may have suffered the worst damage, though, with the giant hail obliterating most of the area's crop in a matter of minutes. The wheat was especially susceptible to storm damage because it was nearly mature, with harvest scheduled to kick off Tuesday.
“It was a pretty damn hard blow to a farming community that's trying to come back from a devastating drought last year,” Whittington said.
