WINDSOR — Tuesday is the 10th anniversary of the Windsor tornado, arguably the most devastating tornado in Colorado’s recorded history.

- Path was nearly 40 miles long (second-longest in Colorado history).
- Mile-wide at one point (widest in Colorado history).
- Headed to in a northwest direction.
- Developed in the late morning, just before 11:30 a.m.
