On Monday night, the Missoula area was hit with one of the most violent (and quickest) storms in recent memory. According to NBC Montana, nearly 18,000 people were without power.

Update: Clean up begins after Monday nights storm left debris scattered all over the Missoula area. Here are tree drop-off spots in the area to dispose of your damaged trees.
