Severe weather has swept across Colorado, prompting a tornado warning for Weld County on Thursday afternoon. The state is in the midst of tornado season, with June historically being a particularly active month.

The Enhanced Fujita (EF) Scale is currently in use to categorize the strength of tornadoes, with ratings ranging from EF-0 to EF-5, indicating varying levels of severity.

Understanding the distinction between a Tornado Watch and a Tornado Warning is crucial during such weather events. A Tornado Watch is issued well in advance, signifying favorable conditions for tornado formation and urging preparedness.

Conversely, a Tornado Warning indicates an immediate threat, with a tornado either occurring or imminent. Immediate action is imperative during a Tornado Warning, requiring individuals to seek shelter in a designated safe space.

In the event of a tornado, individuals are advised to find an interior room on the lowest floor of a building, preferably one without windows. Basements or bathrooms often serve as suitable safe locations.
