Five tornadoes tore through parts of southeast Colorado yesterday, leaving several injured and causing considerable damage to farming communities.
According to the National Weather Service two tornadoes hit Prowers County, two tore through Kiowa County, and one went through parts of Bent County in the early morning hours of April 27th.
According to the Denver office of the National Weather Service, overnight twisters in Colorado are rare. The last time an overnight tornado hit the state was April 30th, 1942. Ironically it hit the same two counties of Bent and Kiowa, the same areas hit this year.
