Monday, June 9, 2014, 8:31 AM - What started out as a quiet Sunday in Colorado quickly changed as damaging storms pushed through.

Several tornadoes were reported through the afternoon hours including one that hit near a junior golf tournament in Aurora.

Minor injuries and property damage were reported.

"It's scary, because all the kids were out there playing golf, and I was in the league last year, so it could have been me," one golfer said.

One person was taken to the hospital after a golf car flipped over in the strong winds. 

He broke his wrist, but officials say it's a minor injury considering a construction trailer just a few kilometres away was completely turned upside down.

According to the U.S. National Weather Service, six of the tornadoes struck in northeast Colorado, while two others hit in Park County.
