Severe Weather Hits Northern Colorado, Estes Not Affected

Powerful tornadoes touched down in Weld County Thursday, moving through the rural towns, smashing homes and businesses and killing at least one person.

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter has declared a state of emergency for Weld County, mobilizing the Colorado National Guard to assist with disaster response.

We are deeply saddened after hearing the news regarding the tornado disaster.

As a point of information for visitors to Colorado, Estes Park was unaffected by the storm, other than receiving a thunderstorm, small hail and hard rains.

We hold the victims of the storms in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.
