PEETZ, Colo. (CBS4)– Three tornadoes hit northeastern Colorado on Monday afternoon, one was on the ground for about 13 minutes and destroyed a barn in Logan County.
Some power lines were also ripped down by the twisters but there were no injuries.
“As we were waiting, the tornado started to go by the house and over the barn and it started to throw debris,” said one witness.
Emergency officials said sustained winds kicked up nearly 60 mph more than 30 miles away from the storm.
“It started out as white, like a real cloud, and then all of a sudden you can see all the dark brown… you could tell something was getting pulled up from the ground,” said another witness.
According to the sheriff’s office, cloud rotation was spotted in the area of Highway 113 and County Road 32 and near County Roads 37 and 74. One tornado was spotted at County Roads 37 and 74.
