Damage In Saline County Estimated Over $1 Million

More from all the damage in Dorchester, Wilber and other parts of Saline County caused by Tuesday's hail and wind storms.

The Journal Star reports that in Saline County, Wilber, Dorchester and Crete saw the worst hail damage, said B.J. Fictum, the county's emergency management director. Tobias and Western also suffered minor storm damage.

Fictum estimated the hail damage at "hundreds of thousands of dollars," and that does not include any agricultural damage.

"Basically, anything on the north side of a house or business is gone," Fictum said.
