 Brief Description: Twin tornadoes developed 5 miles southwest of Fort Morgan. Although one of the twisters dissipated quickly; the other caused substantial damage to a farmstead. A teenager trapped in the home was uninjured when he took shelter in the basement. The tornado lifted the roof off the house temporarily and broke several windows. Also, the roof of a vacant dairy barn nearby was completely torn off. A car, 2 dump trucks and 2 pickups used in the families' tree service business were completely destroyed. One dog and several of the family cats were killed. Debris was spread approximately 300 yards across the area. Not too far away, the tornado also tossed an empty 5,000 gallon propane storage tank 500 yards and a nearly full 250 gallon storage tank 600 yards. Estimated damage to property in Morgan County was around $150,000.

 Brief Description: A tornado touched down near Gill. It damaged a grain bin owned by the Northern Feed and Bean of Gill. Although not confirmed, it is believed the same twister was responsible for destroying a 60-ft by 250-ft storage building south of town. The tornado also uprooted a tree near Kuner, east of Kersey. The time of the tornado was approximated. In addition several twisters, strong thunderstorm winds and large hail the size of baseballs caused several power outages in central Weld County. Power was out from Kersey to Purcell, which covered a distance of 20 miles, for about 12 hours. An estimated 400 to 500 residents were without power throughout the night. Crops in the area also received substantial damage, but no dollar estimates were available.
