Billings (MT) Arena Damaged By Tornado

Sunday afternoon a tornado ripped through Billings, Montana damaging property and some businesses before hovering for fifteen minutes over the 10,000-seat Rimrock Auto Arena.

Here's the video of the twister. (Thanks KTVQ)

The arena is the home of the Billings Outlaws of the Indoor Football League, The Outlaws were scheduled to host a playoff game this coming Sunday afternoon against the Tri-Cities Fever

Here's a statement from Outlaws general manager Adam Steadman released by the team:

"At this time, we know that the damage to MetraPark is substantial. I haven't been in contact with MetraPark administration and don't expect that I will be able to talk with them this evening. All we can do right now is to let emergency crews do their jobs while MetraPark officials continue their assessments as well."
