ARDMORE, South Dakota (AP) - Preliminary reports from the National Weather Service say a tornado touched down Friday night near the far southwest South Dakota ghost town of Ardmore.
Meteorologist Jeff Schild says that the Weather Service has received reports that the tornado hit a farm north of Ardmore about 8:15, destroying five out buildings.
Schild says the Weather Service is working to confirm the reports and determine the severity of the tornado.
Schild says although only one tornado was reported Friday night, a storm dropped hail across northeastern Wyoming and southwestern South Dakota.
Reports from Edgemont list golf-ball- to softball-size hail, and baseball-size hail was reported in the Moorcroft, Wyoming, area.
