Thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon brought strong gusty winds throughout much of Gallatin Valley.

Wind gusts up to 60 mph knocked down trees and caused damage in Manhattan, just west of Bozeman. The downed trees blocked roadways and did considerable damage to residences throughout the town.

I have lived in Manhattan since early 2018, and the winds were the strongest I've experienced since buying a home there. The wind was extremely loud and lasted for nearly an hour.

Wendy Schneider Meyer, a resident of Manhattan shared her experience.

I was walking with my dogs on Nixon Gulch near the river when this current storm blew in …Thank you so much to the wonderful people who scooped us up from the ditch and gave us a safe ride home. I didn’t get your names but am forever grateful. Kindness is appreciated.

On my way to work this morning, I took a couple of pictures of trees that had fallen in my neighborhood.
