Hand-size hailstone near Curtis. The photo was taken at 8:50 p.m.

Large hail pounded parts of North Platte, Lake Maloney and southern Lincoln County Wednesday night, breaking car windows as a fast-moving storm tore through the city around 6:30 p.m. 

Hail stones the size of golf, tennis and baseballs were reported. 

The National Weather Service received reports of broken windows and damaged patio decks, especially in western and southern areas of Lincoln County.  

Lincoln County Emergency Manager Brandon Myers said several motor vehicles were damaged in North Platte and Lake Maloney.

The Wellfleet area was reportedly one of the hardest hit areas.

The storm missed the east side of North Platte as it traveled southeast toward Frontier County.
