Tornado In Billings, MT

A cleanup day for MetraPark has been scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon on Tuesday. The United Way is seeking 500 people to serve a 2-hour shift. You must be registered in advance as walk-up volunteers won't be accepted. Check out youcanvolunteer.org for more info.



A temporary shelter has been set up at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints 1711 Sixth St. W. For more information on how the Red Cross is aiding those displaced by floods, please contact Rod Kopp of the American Red Cross of Montana at 1-800-ARC-MONT.

U-Haul has offered 30 days of free self-storage to storm victims. For more information, contact the Heights U-Haul Center, 1145 Main St., at 248-7162.

Harvest Church has cleanup volunteers and supplies at the ready to help with damage. Anyone who needs assistance may call George Burgin at 259-5648.

A Military Family of 7 was affected by the flooding and is not looking for cash donations. They simply need some storage space, food vouchers, lodging, etc. If you would like to donate or would like more information contact Maria Rivera at 406.671.4598 or e-mail her at maria.rivera2@usarec.army.mil.

First half was awesome. I got a neck strain from watching the second half.. lol. Incredible footage showing how a slow moving tornado can break down a large structure. Still amazed at how nonchalant the other traffic was with debris that close. Crazy people.

McLovin didn't film it.

Anonymous said...

Its a really incredible video but...
was the videographer an idiot? You can't turn a video on its side like you can with a still camera.

McLovin said...

I did not film it. My friend Kyle Reynolds did. He let me post it on the blog before anyone else had this video

Anonymous said...

It's a cool video, but I hope he remembers that little tip next time he's recording something...you guys should check whether news outlets want it.

wow, thanks for sharing that was crazy! no more metra :(

ugh. I have been born and raised in montana for 24 years... this is tragic. I am from Bozeman, but time wise, that tornado is pretty Effin close. Gives me chills.

Anonymous said...

OH NO! THE METRO! We went to the PBR there!!!!!! It's sad cause thats the place where montana truley expresses itself :( no more rodeos

Anonymous said...

Don't be silly, that is what insurance is for and yes there will be rodeos, that is what the outdoors are for too! The Metra is not gone just broken.

Anonymous said...

Rest in Peace Metra! :( Bahahaha sorry that is just too funny to say. I love how we're concerned about all the Rodeos. So Montanans... haha!

that construction job site down on alkali creek,was where my dad was working..that was his bosses equipment..and the cat skidder isn't even their's its another jod sites..but they have insurance on it..

!st let me say I'm glad everyone is safe. I've been close to much worse tornedos in AR. SCARY. My sister lives oin MT & I haven't been awble to reach her by "cell" phone. I wanted to know the exact location of the tornedo & it's range of damage. The MAJOR news mogals only focus on the sensational & no decent information. I guess they didn't have the minute it would take to put up a map. This is the ONLY site where I got decent information. And the pictures were fantastic. I'd have my camera sidewase also if I saw an approaching tornedo (after peeing my pants) lololol Tke care ll & help those who suffered losses.

cp said...

The Metra was so sweet! I hope the recovery goes well. Thank goodness there were no deaths or injuries.

Anonymous said...

Hey, the guy didn't film it, the woman with him did...typical, just overlook that a woman had the presence of mind to shoot this, (yeah, she turned it sideways, but she was trying to show the whole thing, I got it) and just give the guy all the credit. Good work gal, whoever you are...

McLovin said...

Hey Anonymous who posted at "June 21, 2010 11:07 AM"

No one was injured in the tornado. The range was about a half mile-mile in diameter destroying the Metra, FasBreak AutoGlass, Main Street Casino, Reiter's, and small damage to other businesses. Again not one injury reported
