A Tornado Warning was issued earlier today along the Gallatin/Broadwater/Meagher county lines. Meagher County D.E.S. took a picture of the funnel cloud dropping down out of a severe thunderstorm in the 3 o'clock hour today.
National Weather Service Great Falls issued a Tornado Warning as law enforcement reported the funnel cloud. No word yet on any damage or if the twister actually touched the ground.
Historical records show a total of 3 tornadoes reported in Meagher County between 1950-2012 so it is a rare event.
Just East of White Sulphur Springs on June 5th, 2012 and EF1 tornado touched down and was 400 yards wide and 3.78 miles long and no fatalities or injuries.
