Montana Storms Cause Damage, Flooding
Billings, Montana (CNN) - Clean-up is underway in Montana - following a weekend of wicked storms.
Heavy rains flooded streets in Billings, making it difficult for drivers to get around. High winds knocked down trees and power lines and damaged homes.
The National Weather Service says the damage was the result of a "macroburst". A "macroburst" is an intense downward blast of air from a thunderstorm, spreading out over an area that's at least two and a half miles wide. Peak winds during one of these events usually last between five and 20 minutes.
