Twisters Storm Through New Mexico

NewsChannel 10 shares complete coverage of the toronadoes that touched down in Clovis, NM as well as Logan.  A string of at least thirteen twisters swept through those areas on Friday.

Our crews went to Clovis to capture the damage.  Over 100 structures were reportedly destroyed and thirty-five people were injured, two of them critically.  One person has been transported to a Lubbock hospital.

The storms also knocked out power in Clovis and all over the panhandle, leaving several people in the dark still.

XCEL Energy tells us that this evening 1,000 homes in Clovis, NM are still without power and may have to wait until tomorrow before it is restored.  Power outages have also been reported in Amarillo, Hereford, and Vega in connection with Friday's storms.
