EADS, Colo. (AP) - At least seven homes and a hog farm were destroyed after rare nighttime tornadoes reportedly ripped through sparsely populated counties on the southeastern Colorado plains.

Authorities say tornadoes were reported early Friday in Prowers, Kiowa and Bent counties, where the homes were destroyed.

State emergency management division spokeswoman Micki Trost says a hog farm in Prowers County was also destroyed.

The National Weather Service hasn't confirmed the touchdowns yet but a team is assessing the damage.

Overnight tornadoes are rare in Colorado, where cooler nighttime temperatures usually don't create severe weather.
