Spring storm brings wind, hail to Exeter

Around 3:00 p.m. the high winds that plagued Exeter all day turned dangerous as a severe thunderstorm blew into town. A west bound semi with an empty cattle trailer turned over just west of town during the storm. The driver was transported in the Exeter Rescue Unit as a precautionary measure. Exeter Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by the Fillmore County Sheriff Department and the Nebraska State Patrol in traffic control. Randy Hitz of Hitz Towing out of York arrived at the scene to upright the vehicle.
