Severe weather broke out across central and southern Montana and tracked east/southeast into Wyoming and eventually into South Dakota. Several tornado-warned supercells dropped hail over softball size with several funnel reports and flash flooding. One storm formed northwest of Broadus, Montana and tracked nearly 6 hours into South Dakota. Video package contains footage from two intercepts of that storm, one in Alzada, Montana in the southeast part of the state (Carter County) and the other of a near-tornado formation near the town of Colony, Wyoming further down the road and later in the afternoon.
