COLORADO, USA — Many counties, mostly in southern and southeastern Colorado, have now been placed under a Tornado Watch until 9 p.m. Saturday said the National Weather Service (NWS).
>> The video above is about how Colorado's weekend tornado outbreak last week was not unusual. Here's the science.
The full list of counties under Tornado Watch includes:
- El Paso
- Las Animas
The watch also includes parts of Kansas. According to NWS, aside from tornadoes residents in those areas could see scattered wind gusts up to 70 MPH and tennis ball-sized hail.
Close to a million people live in the affected area, according to NWS.
The Tornado Watch comes just a week after a very busy couple of days for tornado activity in Colorado.
Last Saturday and Sunday, NWS said, there were at least 16 different tornadoes in all.
Colorado averages 46 tornadoes a year, the eighth-highest total in the country.
