Multiple tornadoes blew through eastern Colorado Monday afternoon but caused little damage.

In the metro area, severe thunderstorms sent people inside and caused a rain delay at Coors Field where the Rockies were playing the San Francisco Giants. Some areas, including Centennial, reported hail.

At least six tornadoes had been confirmed in Morgan, Washington and Weld Counties, said Kyle Fredin, a forecaster at the National Weather Service’s Boulder office. However, property damage was kept to a minimum with some crop damage in fields and power lines down in Weld County, he said.

On social media, storm chasers posted photos and videos of twin tornadoes near Seibert and Cope.
