Luckily, no one was hurt when a large tornado touched down near Carpenter late this (Monday) afternoon.

"There were two houses and possibly a barn that received damage in the 5000 block of Road 202," said Laramie County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Captain Linda Gesell.

"Everyone is accounted for, no injuries and no one will be displaced," she added.

Gesell says the department has also received some reports of damage north of Pine Bluffs, where a tornado was spotted around 5:30 p.m.

"The deputies are currently accessing all of eastern Laramie County to see," said Gesell.
