Blizzard winds topple tiny house in Colorado, send woman and two cats inside tumbling

Fierce winds from a snowstorm slamming Colorado on Tuesday were so strong they sent a tiny house with a woman and two cats inside tumbling several hundred feet.

The Cripple Creek Fire Department said in a Facebook post that authorities responded to the home after it was "blown down the road."

"Tiny homes and blizzard force winds do not like each other!" the fire department said.

"Strong northerly winds gusting to 60 mph and poor visibility of a 1/4 mile or less in snow and blowing snow can be expected behind the front through the early morning," the NWS said.

O'Nale told FOX31 it appeared the tiny home was anchored down, but it's unclear if it was done properly.
