The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for one Eastern Montana county and tornado watches for others Saturday afternoon.

Brian Tesar, a meteorologist with the Billings office, said several reports had come in from Carter County, around Ekalaka, about a severe storm with quarter-sized hail an inch in diameter.

A tornado watch was issued for south of Ekalaka at least until 4:30 p.m. because of the strong rotation spoted in that storm.

Tornado watches going until 10 p.m. also have been issued for Custer, Powder River and possibly Rosebud counties, Tesar said.
