DENVER (CBS4) – Severe thunderstorms hit Colorado on June 24 producing hail, heavy rain and high winds.
The storms also produced two tornadoes in the higher terrain of north-central Colorado.
The first touchdown was reported around 10:20 a.m. just outside of Steamboat Springs.
Less than an hour later a second tornado was reported at 11:15 a.m. in nearby Jackson County.
Tornadoes are common in Colorado during the month of June but they typically occur during the late afternoon on the eastern plains.
