Storm Brings Hail, Tornado to Central Montana
HOBSON, Mont. (AP) — A storm system that moved north through central Montana has brought hail and at least one tornado in the rural Hobson area, leaving behind downed trees and power lines.
Central Montana 911 dispatcher Dorothy Gremaux says there were no immediate reports of injuries Tuesday night, but cars, houses and outbuildings have been damaged.
National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Brusda says funnel clouds were reported near White Sulphur Springs. He says law-enforcement officers reported a tornado touching down in the Coffee Creek area north of Hobson and moving toward Big Sandy.
He says golf ball-size hail was reported in White Sulphur Springs, penny-size hail in Bozeman and pea-size hail in the Great Falls area.
