LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — A tornado that touched down in northern Colorado has damaged several homes as storms brought flooding and marble-sized hail to some areas.

Larimer County emergency management director Lori Hodges says at least three homes were destroyed Thursday evening in the town of Berthoud, about 40 miles north of Denver.

Crews checking on reports of about 25 other homes that were possibly damaged were hindered by heavy rain and hail.

No injuries have been reported.

At least two tornadoes touched down Thursday afternoon near Simla, about 60 miles southeast of Denver. Elbert County officials say at least five homes were damaged in the area.

No injuries were reported from that string of storms.

Forecasters had warned that the Front Range and the Eastern Plains could experience severe weather Thursday.
