|Brief Description: EVENT NARRATIVE: A large tornado touched down west of Cook Lake and tracked east-southeastward across the Bear Lodge Mountains, dissipating west of Wyoming Highway 111. The tornado downed about 4000 acres of Ponderosa pine trees, destroyed two metal shop buildings and a large barn at a ranch, and severely damaged a house and mobile home. Two people in the residences received very minor injuries. EPISODE NARRATIVE: A supercell thunderstorm developed over northern Campbell County and moved southeastward across Crook County.
