Mile-Wide Tornado Hits Colorado

Here Is Some Amazing Video Footage Of Yesterday's Tornado:

Windsor was hit by a mile-wide tornado around lunch time, and at least one person died as the twister carved a swath of destruction through Weld County.

Colorado State Trooper Ryan Sullivan said the tornado caused multiple crashes and multiple injuries on highways in Weld County.

The Weld County coroner's office has confirmed at least one death. The man was a resident at a campground outside Greeley, the county said in a statement.

Weld County Sheriff's Cmdr. Ken Poncelow said "dozens of houses and dozens of cars" were badly damaged and that several semis were rolled off U.S. 85 north of Gilcrest.

This was the 'mammoth' tornado we discussed yesterday. The Denver Post has an amazing collection of photos and video from the scene. The storm left behind an impressive swath of destruction and luckily the death toll still stands, at least for now, at one.
