YUMA, Colo. — Yuma County, in northeastern Colorado, was hit by two tornadoes and huge hail during severe thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon.
The tornadoes were spotted around 5 p.m., according to spotter reports.
The Yuma Police Department said on Facebook that the tornadoes damaged a home and two outbuildings outside of the city.
The storms knocked down power lines outside the city, and there was localized flooding within city limits, police said. They said no injuries have been reported.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in Goodland, Kansas, said its preliminary storm survey results indicate an EF-3 tornado with 150-mph winds.
Yuma city spokesperson Scott Moore said most of the damage appeared to be concentrated near County Road E between West 10th Avenue and County Road 37.
Sky9 flew over the area Wednesday morning and found several buildings damaged from the storm. Images from Sky9 show that the strong storm ripped the roof off a building, as well as a home.

Along with the tornado, baseball-sized hail fell on the northern part of the city.
Hail measured at 5.25 inches was reported on Highway 36 near Idalia in Yuma County. If the size is confirmed, that would be the biggest hailstone on record in Colorado.
The current record is 4.83 inches in Bethune, in Kit Carson County, in August 2019.
