Severe storms cause damage in some areas

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

Severe thunderstorms hit parts of north-central Montana on Thursday evening.

Large hail was reported with the storms, and 60-85 mph winds were recorded in several areas.

KRTV received reports of storm damage from Toole County and Pondera County where the strongest storms roared through at around 8 p.m.

In Conrad, the winds toppled a greenhouse set up at the IGA. There are no reports of injuries or significant damage from the area, but we're told the greenhouse was destroyed.

Farther north, an 83 mph wind gust was recorded at the Montana Department of Transportation camera located on Interstate 15 at Sunburst.

Additionally, an 81 mph wind gust was recorded at a weather station about four miles east of Pendroy (Teton County).

Two semis were blown over near Shelby (Toole County) on I-15, and a truck pulling a camper jackknifed in that area, too.

We also received reports of a few power outages on the Hi-Line, but no widespread outages are being reported at this time.
