AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- There are no reports of any serious injuries from at least five tornadoes that touched down in Colorado this afternoon.
One of them shut down a mall in the Denver suburb of Aurora, Co., causing moderate damage and gas leaks. The National Weather Service says the twister that damaged the Southlands Mall was on the ground for about 30 minutes, carving an eight-to-10-mile path across southeast Aurora near Buckley Air Force Base.
A car in a parking lot ended up on its roof.
One woman who watched the tornado from the deck on her house says she could see debris flying inside the funnel.
Parts of the Denver area also report hail, some of it the size of baseballs.
