At least three tornadoes were observed in Colorado Friday. The tornadoes were reported to the east and southeast of Denver. The highlighted circle in the picture above is the tornado that resulted in one injury, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. The injury occurred near Byers, Colorado along Route 38 and 181. Parts of the roofs of some buildings were also reportedly ripped off. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1023000030494380032 The tornadoes touched down in fairly rural locations, east of the commonly-traveled Interstate 25 and on the north and south side of Interstate 70. https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/10156692557809874/ These storms were anticipated. A tornado watch was issued a few hours before these storms hit. The area was under what's called an "enhanced" risk of severe thunderstorms. That means numerous severe thunderstorms are possible with more persistent and/or widespread damage. Colorado wasn't the only state with a confirmed tornado Friday. Photo credit: Marion Harleroad Jr. Damage was reported at Marshpoint Elementary School in Chatham County, Georgia. That's the same county where this picture was taken Friday. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1022950426746843136 Additional tornado reports may arrive this weekend as storm damage surveys are conducted. That's when meteorologists from the local National Weather Service offices take a closer look at the storm damage to determine if it was caused by a tornado.
