Northeast Wyoming has certainly experienced its share of severe weather so far this year, as recent thunderstorms have caused plenty of damage by producing large hail, high winds and heavy rain that's resulted in flash flooding. Meteorologist David Church with the National Weather Service in Billings says that the reason the storms seem so severe this year, is because last year we really didn't have many thunderstorms at this time.

Church said that it's pretty typical to have severe weather this time of year and that soon, the storms will lessen in severity.

Church said that people need to keep an eye on the sky this time of year, as storms can develop in a matter of minutes, even if they aren't in the forecast.
