GREAT FALLS - A powerful Monday evening storm left trees scattered all over Great Falls residential neighborhoods.
Some landed on top of cars and there was at least one report of a tree falling on a house.
Fire, police and energy teams were dispatched to more than a dozen locations around the Electric City to tackle the mess, handle traffic and ensure safety.
Wind gusts of up to 60 mph left thousands without power. NorthWestern Energy crews were working to get power restored.
