KRDO-TV, Colorado interviewed him here.
"It was coming in on my over my left shoulder so I didn't really see it."
"The hood of the tractor blew up and when I stood up to pull it back down, my hat flew off in the direction of the tornado, so I turned and saw it. My first reaction was to take cover."
The National Weather Service rated the tornado as an EF-1 on the Enhanced Fujita Scale--capable of producing winds of up to 110 miles per hour. One indication of its strength: broken power poles in the area.
