Colorado Tornado Damaged Home, Downed Power Lines

June 9, 2021

A tornado that touched down in a largely rural area of northern Colorado on Monday damaged at least one home and brought down power poles and lines, authorities said. No injuries were reported.

One home was damaged in a fire caused by downed a power line, Weld County spokesperson Jennifer Finch said.

There have also been reports of livestock lost from farms in the area, Andy Wazny, assistant chief of the Platteville-Gilcrest Fire District said.

The tornado appears to have touched down north of Firestone and then moved to near Platteville before dissipating, the National Weather Service. The agency planned to conduct a damage survey on Tuesday to determine the tornado’s exact track, extent of the damage and the intensity of the twister.
