Hailstorm damaged thousands of acres of Minnesota crops


A corn field farmed by George Sill near Madelia, Minn., was leveled by a hailstorm on June 20, 2019.

A hailstorm that ripped through southwest Minnesota last week left thousands of acres of corn and soybeans damaged or destroyed - in many cases too late in the season for farmers to replant their crops.

"We had a corn and bean field down to dirt again," said George Sill, a farmer southwest of Madelia. "You couldn't hardly tell it had been planted there."
