Cowdin said a neighbor's horse was spooked by the storm, got tangled in barbed wire and had to be put down because its leg was so badly damaged.

There was another unconfirmed report of a tornado in Broadview, Chambers said.

Golf-ball-sized hail was reported in parts of Billings, as well. A tree on the West End caught fire after being struck by lightning.

The storm knocked out power along its path and crews were still working Friday morning to restore service.

A second set of storms moved through the Helena. Over an inch of rain fell in a swath, moving northeast from an area near the city through eastern Chouteau County, the weather service said.
