Wind gusts Sunday in two Montana cities reached as high as 72 miles per hour, but except for a damaged wind turbine at Billings’ City College campus, damage was moderate.

“We didn’t really get a lot of damage reports, which is kind of odd,” said Marc Singer, science and operations officer for the National Weather Service. “It was obviously a really windy day.”

“Broken roofs, gutters, decks,” Tom Yelvington, an arborist with Yellowstone Valley Tree Surgeons, said of the damage he’d seen. “Other storms we’ve looked at, there’s been car damage and other things. But this one wasn’t that bad really.”

Taisei Tech, the maker of the turbine near the Montana State University campus, did not respond for comment.
