Heavy Winds Cause Damage On Eastern Plains

HOLYOKE, Colo. (CBS4) – The storm that brought snow to the Front Range on Tuesday also spawned severe weather as it moved through the Eastern Plains.

Storm chasers caught the thunderstorms moving east, including some small funnel clouds off in the distance in Yuma County.

She says the building had all their farm equipment inside, and that the sheriff’s office believes the damage was caused by a tornado.

The twister apparently damaged about a dozen buildings.

While Holyoke didn’t get a lot of snow, Schram says the wind is making it miserable to do anything outside.

There was also damage from the wind at the Outpost Harley-Davidson dealership. Sixty-two mile an hour winds forced the building to fall apart. Just as emergency crews arrived the building collapsed.
