Mother Nature put on her own show for the 4th of July, hitting Southern Colorado with large hail, heavy rain and damaging winds.

Multiple severe thunderstorms moved through Southern Colorado Sunday evening.

The stronger storms produced large hail. In places like Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Kiowa and Limon, large hail stones varied between 1 and 1.5 inch diameters. Even larger hail occurred in Lincoln County. According to law enforcement there, hail shattered the windshields of about 20-25 cars along I-70.

From hail to tornados, funnel clouds were spotted in northeastern El Paso County, along with in Elbert and Lincoln counties. There were several doppler indicated tornados in these areas, but there were no official reports of any tornados touching down.

Storms will completely exit the area by early Monday morning.

    I was driving thru it, and had to pull over. All of my glass shattered and my car is totalled. I have a picture of the funnel cloud. It was the scariest thing I've ever been through.

    My wife and I were coming home around 7:30 near Dublin and Oakwood and we missed the heavy part by just seconds. We had hail the size of half dollars. It caused some pretty bad damage to the trees, plants and our neighbors car!

    We got caught in this storm while driving through Lincoln and Elbert counties. Our windshield and back glass were shattered AND fell out. We saw the funnel cloud. That was the scariest thing I've ever endured!
