Hail caught some Townsend residents off guard Saturday afternoon

Hail caught some Townsend residents off guard Saturday afternoon. A strong storm brought large, damaging hail through the area, which one homeowner captured on video, showing many of the hailstones were around two inches in diameter. Longtime residents say they’ve never seen hail like that in Montana. The hail cracked windshields and put dents in vehicles around town. There were also some reports of crop damage from the storm.
