Thunderstorm rips through Madrid

Outflow winds from a fierce thunderstorm, estimated from 70-80 mph, ripped through a large storage building at Scoular in Madrid around 5:30 p.m. Monday. Tin from the building cut right through the roof and punched a hole in the building owned by Randy and Tonya Meyer. A golf cart and pickup inside the building were also damaged. Meyer’s neighbor, Erika Laber, had just returned home from work and got her kids and the pets downstairs. The same storm dropped hail as large as baseballs, according to the National Weather Service. Corn fields in the Wallace area were decimated by the hail.
