Home / National News / Injuries Reported After Tornadoes Rip Through Colorado


(NEW YORK) —  About a dozen tornadoes touched down in Colorado this weekend as massive storms swept through the area.

At least five people were injured in the eastern Colorado city of Wray after a tornado flipped tractors, ripped through outbuildings and destroyed mobile homes.

But the twisters were mostly over rural land, including one in the video below, caught on camera by shocked residents of Wray.

The storms also produced baseball-sized hail, which covered the ground in parts of Denver.

Residents in Kansas and Oklahoma were also on alert Sunday, as more storms were forecast in the region.
