Tornado Damages Montana Sports Arena

A YouTube user captured a tornado tear through the Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings, Montana on Sunday evening. The video shows debris whipping around in the sky above the Metra Park event venue. The twister was one of the largest to hit the city since 1958, a National Weather Service meteorologist tells KTVQ-TV.

Note to self:   When filming a tornado a few hundred feet away hold the camera upright, not sideways.  I must confess I did that a couple of times while filming things because you’re looking into the screen and it seems normal to you until you play it back on your TV.  Still –  Amazing footage.

Here’s some video right after the tornado passed.

  1. A friend of mine lives about 1/4 mile away from the arena and said that just after the building was destroyed, hail the size of golf balls started coming down. Totaled both of his cars and did major damage to the siding on his house. Good thing he has full insurance lol
