SIDNEY, Mont. – A tornado picked up a single-wide trailer in eastern Montana and threw it onto a storage shed about 60 feet away, injuring a 79-year-old man and his dog.
The National Weather Service in Glasgow says a storm unleashed a tornado with winds estimated at 100 mph and dropped hail up to 2 inches in diameter Tuesday evening about 17 miles southeast of Sidney, near the North Dakota line.
A photo of the damage shows the frame of the trailer wrapped around a pickup truck and the shed in shambles. A separate single-wide trailer used for storage was upended and landed on its top.
The man was taken to the hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. Weather officials did not have his name or know how badly he was hurt.
