A series of tornadoes hit eastern Colorado on Saturday, May 7, 2016. One of them touched down at the north edge of the City of Wray around 18:00 local time, causing minor injuries to five people and significant damage to four structures.

According to Yuma County Sheriff Chad Day, Wray tornado followed a path about 800 m wide (half a mile) and 9.6 km long (6 miles) along Highway 385, beginning from County Road 37 to County Road 42, where it began curving to the northeast.

Yuma County first responders were still assessing damage and did not have a total on buildings or other damage as of midday Sunday, May 8. Deputies with the Sheriff's Office conducted overnight security for the business and residences that were destroyed. 

Another twister touched down around 15:00 local time near Wiggins in Morgan County. Authorities said some damage was reported in the town of Orchard.
