Powerful Winds Cause Damage in Southern Colorado

Wind gusts as strong as 107 mph blew through Colorado on Wednesday, December 15, as a powerful storm system swept across several states, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

Christina Ardolino said she recorded video from Springfield on Wednesday as she surveyed the damage.

“I didn’t see a cow flying, but if a cow was going to fly, today would have been the day,” Ardolino joked on Facebook.
