Overview

A preliminary damage survey was conducted after a severe supercell thunderstorm passed through eastern El Paso County the evening of June 7th.  There was much wind and hail damage in eastern El Paso County. It was determined that two tornadoes occurred, one north of Calhan and another south of Ramah.  

North of Calhan a tornado crossed the Elbert-El Paso County line, moving south-southwest.  Below is a map of the 2.6 mile path of the tornado, which was around 200 yards wide at its maximum.
