Crews were putting in long hours cleaning up after a brief, yet violent surge of weather that hit Denver on Thursday.
Officials with the National Weather Service confirmed that a microburst was responsible for knocking down approximately 20 large trees in Denver on Thursday night.
What was originally thought to be an explosion turned out to be a probable microburst that destroyed the roof of a home in Greeley.
People in part of Greeley thought they heard an explosion just before 2 p.m. on Tuesday, but firefighters believe a microburst tore the roof off a home.
Wind gusts and microbursts delayed some flights to and from Denver, and at least one flight was diverted elsewhere.
