Please pray for the residents of Windsor, Colorado. Around 11:30 this morning, a tornado (an F2-F3 on the Fujita scale) touched down. Governor Ritter is declaring this county a state of emergency.
In this small town of 15,000, nearly 150 homes were destroyed. The funnel measured ¼ mile or ½ mile wide. With such devastation, I’m amazed that only 100 were injured and one life lost. It’s unclear when XCel will be able to restore power to the area.
One man reported that when he came up from the basement, half the house was gone and a Bible fluttered in the wind where the living room used to be. Golf ball and baseball size hail damaged countless roofs and vehicles.
Unfortunately, Windsor wasn’t the only town hit. Much of Weld County suffered damage.
