At least one tornado damages homes in eastern Colorado

Many people are out of their homes this morning in eastern Colorado after at least one tornado rolled through overnight.

A tornado was reported southeast of Lamar and another northeast of Lamar, though it might have been the same tornado.  A substation on Prowers County Road 11 was damaged and power was knocked out to Lamar.  Homes were damaged west of Lamar.  Emergency crews report some walls collapsed and portions of roofs were torn off. 

No serious damage injuries have been reported.

We have a News 5 crew on the way.
