BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A storm that produced as many as five tornadoes destroyed a home and caused other damage in Montana and South Dakota.

The National Weather Service estimates one tornado Thursday night had winds over 130 mph, based on the damage. The tornado completely destroyed a shed, toppled a trailer, moved heavy hay bales and stripped the bark off trees.

The twister originated in southeastern Montana and crossed into western South Dakota.

The Billings Gazette reports the tornadoes stayed mostly over rural areas.
