Subject: Skywarn Activation Today

Thanks to you and all of your folks who graciously helped us out today with activating for Skywarn activities. All of the reports we received were greatly appreciated, especially since this was done on such short notice.

Indeed we did experience some significant weather across our area of responsibility this afternoon:
1. Minor flooding and/or localized flash flooding: Grand County Utah, as well as portions of Delta County, Mesa County, and Archuleta County in western Colorado.

2. Tornado about 10 miles NW of Delta over open country.

3. Golf ball sized hail about 4 miles east of Pagosa Springs.

4. Numerous trees downed or snapped off (up to 3 feet in diameter at the trunk) in an 8 square mile area east of Pagosa Springs, due to either thunderstorm outflow winds or possibly a tornado.

Please forward this message of a gratitude to all of your Skywarn volunteers.
