Tornado Hits Billings

Billings, Mont. – In the wake of yesterday’s tornado in Billings it leaves behind a considerable amount of cleanup and repair as well as concern for upcoming events at MetraPark. At approximately 4:20 pm, a tornado touched down at MetraPark and hovered for several minutes over the Rimrock Auto Arena. The intensity of the storm ripped a substantial amount of the roof off the 10,000-seat arena, while destroying a majority of the trees around the facility. Montana Governor Brian Switzer toured the area and is expected to declare it an emergency, which will allow for access to funding for cleanup.
