Thunderstorms hammer North Central Montana

A viewer sent this picture of storm damage to KRTV (HAVRE)- Residents from the Front to the Hi-Line are cleaning up today after a series of severe thunderstorms swept across the region Thursday evening. 

The storms had developed over Western Montana late in the afternoon and picked up additional strength as they crossed the Divide and moved onto the Plains. Many communities experienced brief, heavy rain and hail with winds gusting to more than 80-miles per hour. 

KRTV reports there were reports of power outages, and a greenhouse was destroyed in Conrad, but no one was injured in the storms. 

With a second cold front passing through the region Friday, forecasters say more storms are possible, although likely not with the intensity of what happened yesterday.
