I don't think it's too much to worry. The terrain in Billings isn't ideal for peak tornadoes.

People that live in mobile homes probably have something to worry about alittle.

I was driving around while the sirens were going off. I could care less haha.

^^ WRONG!! Main Street was completely wiped out!! I cannot wait to see the pictures people have of the storm. Sorry to hear about your truck Shawn and I am also sorry to hear about your STI Dustin. Looks like I am not the only one that is going to be wrapped up in body work for the next few weeks.

Haven't seen it but B1R called and said both our trucks are messed up. I hope everyone else is ok, and sorry to anyone else who has damage. Eric thanks for calling to check on us, glad you guys were ok.

My little brother was driving on main street when the tornado touched down and it threw a chunk of wood into his windshield, shattering it..... Then he couldn't make it home because all the streets were flooded, then he wasn't allowed to drive on wicks because they declared the heights a "disaster zone"...no one in or out. He finally made it home save thank god, but holy shit....epic pics...and a video



These people who I know personally (through church) have NO IDEA how close they really are, at one point he says about a quarter mile, but judging from the base of the funnel and where they are parked, I'd say no more than 100 yards at most....


The trunk in there is pretty sweet. That's the inside of the metra....



This is what is left of the glass shop

Main street casino and reiters kawasaki in the background

Better picture of the front of the metra

Long story short, I'm sorry to anyone whose car was messed up.....this is pretty epic for Montana...oh, and by the way, Kyle, the guy who took the video, already sold it to CBS and NBC.....bastard...the one time I'm out of town and this thing hits less than a mile from my house....bullshit. I woulda stormchasered the shit out of that thing

Yeah, and he can't say how much he made as per contracts with the companies, but I figured probably in the 3k mark total. Would have made more I think if he would have gotten an exclusivity deal with one of the networks.

I had a HD Canon Camcorder and would have filmed that shit 24/7 up close. $3K? Hell I'd do alot more and never post that shit on the net. It can be copied and all over.

I was in the middle of fixing the Venge at the top of the Beartooth pass when it hit. I live right behind Target in the heights. I got 10 phone calls as soon as I hit the bottom of the pass and started freaking out cause my puppy was all alone RIGHT UNDER the tornado Sad Surprisingly my neighborhood was completely untouched by ANY hail and it didn't look like we even got any wind. Thank God, this could have been so much worse!

yeah i think that was the first time i've ever known of a tornado touching down and reeking havoc in town. They said the last time one touched down in Yellowstone county was in July of 1958, my Dad was born in Billings in May of '58 yet there is no way he can remember that since he was so little. They did say the one back in '58 caused like 2. something million dollars in damage though.

There was actually a storm about 6 years ago on the rims that had 3 tornadoes in it. Back in '89 there was also a storm that came through the Heights and right over the Lake Hills Golf Course. I lived on St. Andrews and we were right in the middle of it. Those are the only ones that I know of.

No worries Todd, I have been tracking the weather for the last few hours and it is forming more toward the East. I will be tracking this cell all night so stay posted.
