A tornado has damaged about a dozen fifth-wheel campers and caused some minor injuries in Colorado's northeastern Plains.

The tornado was first reported on the ground at about 3 p.m. Saturday near the rural community of Wiggins, about 65 miles northeast of Denver. It also damaged other vehicles, toppled trees and scattered debris on the ground.
