BONNEVILLE, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Some crazy weather Saturday, including a tornado warning earlier that night. A funnel cloud is what caused all the commotion in Bonneville County. That led to a tornado warning, then later a thunderstorm warning with some severe weather.
The storm caused quite a bit of chaos and damage Saturday night. The storm hit several geese who were flying; we have footage of the geese being shot by lightning and hitting the ground. There were about 50 dead geese near the KIFI/KIDK news station parking lot By 7:30 p.m., Idaho Fish and Game picked them up and cleaned the lot.
But the geese were not the only thing affected by the crazy weather. KIFI/KIDK viewers sent pictures and video, documenting the storm and the aftermath.
Southeast Idaho had heavy rain, strong winds and hail. Idaho Falls and the surrounding area saw quarter-sized hail at some points. Ammon, Shelley and Idaho Falls were some of the hardest-hit areas, including phone calls about the wind blowing out windows. South in Pocatello, American Falls and Aberdeen also saw strong winds and rain.
