BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Yellowstone County commissioners have approved the final insurance settlement for the Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark, which was severely damaged by a tornado last summer.

The Billings Gazette reports the commission approved the $28.3 million settlement with insurer Affiliated FM on Tuesday. The insurance company has already paid $21.5 million toward the claim.

A tornado with winds up to 120 mph touched down on top of the arena June 20th. It was the first large tornado to hit Billings in more than a half-century, and it tore off the arena's roof, damaged hundreds of homes and businesses and scattered debris across the city.
