WINDSOR, Colo. (AP) - Officials in northern Colorado say at
least 150 homes are damaged following a large tornado that killed
one person and cut a 35-mile path though several towns.
An official with the state Division of Emergency Management
provided the number of at least 150 homes damaged. However, a
commander of the response team says a preliminary estimate based on
a flyover showed about 100 houses destroyed and 100 damaged. But he
says those numbers could change dramatically.
Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave today remarked that it was
"miraculous" that there has not been more loss of life after her
tour of damaged neighborhoods.
The twister cut power to 60,000 customers, but electricity has
been restored to most of those affected.
