COLORADO, USA — The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Tornado Warning on Sunday evening for parts of southeastern Colorado, but it has been canceled.
The warning was going to be in effect until 7:30 p.m. in northwestern Prowers County in southeastern Colorado.
NWS said, "The tornado threat has diminished and the Tornado Warning has been canceled. However, large hail and damaging winds remain likely and a Severe Thunderstorm Warning remains in effect for the area. However small hail and gusty winds are still possible with this thunderstorm."
At 6:27 p.m. the NWS said a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located near Wiley, or seven miles north of Lamar, moving east at 25 mph.
NWS told people in those areas to "move to a basement or an interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building. Avoid windows. If you are outdoors, in a mobile home, or in a vehicle, move to the closest substantial shelter and protect yourself from flying debris."
