Severe storms moved through far Southeast Colorado on Tuesday night. While the storms were isolated, they were very intense. Numerous reports of golfball size hail, damaing winds, and torrential rain were sent to the 11 News Storm Team. The hardest hit areas were from Eads southeast to Springfield and Walsh. Damage was even reported at the Springfield Airport. While no official reports of tornadoes occurred, strong rotation was present in both of the supercell storms. I spoke to the National Weather Service Office in Pueblo, and was told they would likely send a Meteorologist to Springfield to survey the damage.
