WELD COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A landspout tornado caused some damage in Weld County on Wednesday. Landspouts form during thunderstorms and are weaker than a super-cell tornado and typically look like a column of dust.
The Weld County Sheriff’s Office shared photos of a barn that appeared to have its roof ripped off.
Sheriff Steve Reams said the barn was in the area of County Road 47 and Highway 392.
CBS4 meteorologist Ashton Altieri said there were at least two or three landspouts in Weld County Wednesday evening.
A LOT of people in Weld County saw landspouts tonight. From what we can tell, there were at least 2-3 of them and one may be responsible for minor damage (but no injuries). Regardless, a memorable night for many!#cowx #4wx
