Storms moved across Colorado’s Front Range and Eastern Plains on Monday afternoon, dumping hail and rain on communities up and down the Interstate 25 corridor, with two tornadoes being spotted in the southeast part of the state.
Lightning strikes also dotted the landscape, with one bolt hitting a natural gas line — and sending a plume of fire into the air — in the 16900 block of East Hinsdale Avenue in Foxfield. The road was closed as a result, but no injuries were reported and no homes were threatened, according to South Metro Fire Rescue.
Heavy rain and hail were reported in Boulder County on Monday afternoon, and a hailstorm also swept through Pueblo to the south.
One tornado was spotted near Arlington, around 6 p.m., with Denver7 reporting about a tornado producing storm in area.
The national weather service reported a tornado near Eads at about 2:50 p.m. Both sightings were in Kiowa County. There were no reports of injuries.
