Flooding ruins tons of Montana hay

Virgil Vaupel photos via KRTV(GREAT FALLS)- Farmers in North Central Montana are tallying up the damages after losing tons of hay to recent wet weather and flooding. 

KRTV reports as many as 9-thousand bails might have been lost to the flooding that's happened in recent stretches of stormy weather. And as many as 25-square miles are still submerged. 

Unseasonable rains, combined with some thunderstorms, hail and high winds have continued to sweep across the northern half of the state this week.
