Hailstones 1 inch and larger were seen from Scobey to Poplar, with some crop damage reported. A tornado classified by the National Weather Service an as EF2 touched down about 20 miles north of Wolf Point and later north of Poplar. This photo was taken shortly after 3 p.m. Monday at St. Marie, on 5th Avenue facing east.
