WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A tornado struck northern Colorado on Monday, damaging homes and buildings, downing power lines and killing livestock, authorities said.
According to KUSA-TV, the twister touched down about 5 p.m. local time near Frederick and traveled 14 miles to an area west of Platteville, where it dissipated about 5:30 p.m.
Although Weld County officials have not received any reports of injuries, a fallen power line started a house fire, according to KCNC-TV. The tornado also damaged at least six structures and killed two calves at an Erie farm, the news outlets reported.
On Monday night, the National Weather Service tweeted that it will conduct a survey Tuesday to “determine the exact track, damage and intensity of the tornado (EF-scale).”
Onlookers took to social media to share photos and videos of the twister. See some of them below:
