A tornado hit the town of Baker in southeastern Montana on Saturday evening.

At 7:07 p.m., the National Weather Service reported a confirmed tornado 10 miles east of Baker, moving northeast.

At this point, there have been no reported serious injuries.

Several homes have been destroyed or seriously damaged.
