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

This tornado was rare for Colorado in a few ways.

  • Strength was an EF3 (there have been 24 EF/F 3 rated tornadoes in Colorado since 1950).
  • 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.

An interactive map can show the path of the tornado and all others in Colorado and the nation from 1950 to 2015.
