DENVER -- Storms have brought a tornado and 2-inch hail to Wyoming, a day after thunderstorms pummeled parts of Wyoming and Colorado with golf ball-sized hail and heavy rain.

Platte County Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Becky Kumpf says one person was treated for undisclosed, minor injuries from the tornado Thursday, and was released.

National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Trudel says the tornado touched down briefly near Wheatland, north of Cheyenne. Emergency responders are looking for other possible patients following reports of damaged structures.

Trudel says hail the size of golf balls was reported in the Wheatland area, and 2-inch hail was reported in Laramie.

On Wednesday, about five tornadoes touched down in Colorado. No serious damage was reported.
