Tornadoes have been known to toss around everything from cars and trucks to cows and people, but usually the objects don’t vanish.

However, last Thursday, a tornado near the Montana/South Dakota border apparently “lofted and destroyed some farm machinery, including a 5-ton tractor that has yet to be found,” according to the National Weather Service.

The article goes on to state the following:

Winds were estimated at 136 mph. “While much of the damage was consistent with an EF-1 or EF-2 tornado, the most significant damage was consistent with an EF-3 tornado,” the weather service noted. The tornado will be officially categorized in the next few days.

No injuries or deaths were reported in last Thursday’s storms in the region. However, residents reported finding numerous dead deer.
