Landspout tornado spotted in Phillips County.

(Phillips County – KRTV) There was a landspout tornado in northeastern Montana on Thursday, May 16th.

The tornado was on the ground in the far northern part of Phillips County, about 24 miles north of Whitewater and 1 mile south of the Canadian border.

According to the property owner, there was no damage to any buildings or vehicles. However, they may have to reseed the fields that the tornado traveled through.

Montana’s tornado season generally spans from late May through early August, the National Weather Service says the two key ingredients for tornado formation are low-level moisture and wind shear.
