Supercell thunderstorm that formed south of Baker, MT on June 11th. The storm became outflow dominant as it near Baker and produced a shelf cloud. As it entered the town, another small cell merged with the storm and it quickly produced a small spin-up tornado that appeared to be anti-cyclonic. Unfortunately, there was damage to a few structures, and some injuries as a result.
