Tornado up the pass?

Dave just called as he was driving down 24 from Woodland Park. He says he was looking at a funnel cloud over Chipita Park and saw another up around Divide. And it was hailing like a sonofagun. Anyone taking photos?

I saw a funnel could forming over Cedar Heights a few summers ago, but it never touched down. I never thought I'd see that sort of storm over the mountains, but old-timers say a tornado has touched down in Manitou. Wild.

Look for updates on And send your pix! or

so what happened with the tornado - any pictures? or did it not touch down anywhere in God's country?

funnel clouds dipping down above Green Mountain Falls and Chipita Park as well as near downtown Colorado Springs

I don't know if there was a touchdown up near Divide, but a swath of trees were blown down/ripped up.

An observer at the Divide VFD saw the tornado touch down nearby.
