Early in the afternoon hail fell in various places including Littleton, the Denver Tech Center, Aurora, Gunbarrel, Niwot, Firestone and Fort Lupton. In Greenwood Village and at Cherry Creek Reservoir 2 inch diameter hail was recorded. One inch hail also fell in Greeley.

H.J. Erker lives south of Roggen and shared a video of a what is believed to be a funnel cloud.

The Southeast Weld Fire Protection District tells CBS4 they are assessing the damage, and one semi was flipped on its side off County Roads 4 and 75 — three miles east of Prospect Valley. They say the area is mainly open fields.

“Mine was the worst of all of them,” Rachel Milhoan told CBS4, showing her blown out back window. “My front windshield got it too, and a taillight.”

“You could really hear it pounding, like maybe five or ten minutes. It was constant,” she said. “You look out and there’s huge hail all over the ground and the parking lot. I came out and everyone was surrounding my car.”

Kaylea and Kinley Van Dam were also at the fitness center with their mom when the storm blew through. The sisters said they were nervous and felt bad for the cars outside.

“It literally sounded like a bad marching band that just didn’t practice,” Kaylea said of the hailstorm.

Severe storms also pounded several parts of the Denver metro area on Monday night — from Boulder and Louisville out to Thornton and Brighton — with golf ball to softball-sized hail.
