The same storm system that sparked thunderstorms in western Montana on Wednesday spawned a tornado Thursday in Eastern Montana.
It spun up at 7:19 p.m., 4 miles to the west of Wibaux on the eastern edge of the state.
We spoke with the National Weather Service Office in Glasgow Friday morning. They plan to send a team of meteorologists out today to assess the damage, and give the tornado a strength rating.
In addition to the tornado, there were nine reports of large hail Thursday in eastern Montana, to go along with 17 reports of damaging wind.
