Jeff Ruden had just pulled into his garage Thursday afternoon when he got the alert: a tornado had been spotted over Highlands Ranch.
Less than 10 minutes later, the hail started. And after the raging winds pulled the first tree out of the ground, Ruden and his family hunkered down in their basement for shelter.
“You could feel the whole house shake, your ears were popping, you knew something came over,” he said. “We were literally in the direct line of what came through. I have six 20-year-old trees that are on the ground. There’s no more shade for the house.”
Friday morning, Ruden was among the residents working to repair damage and clean up debris strewn along the tornado’s 8.36-mile path through Highlands Ranch and into Lone Tree — trees uprooted, windows broken, roofs and siding beat up from the hail.
Nobody was seriously injured by the tornado, which the National Weather Service said touched down at 3:24 p.m. and was on the ground for 26 minutes. In that time, it traveled more than 8 miles — about 2 miles more than the weather service initially estimated.
Meteorologists gave the tornado a classification of EF-1, with top wind speeds of 105 mph. NWS officials also said it’s likely that straight-line winds knocked down trees about a mile or more south of the tornado’s path.
“It was surreal to come out and see the aftermath,” Ruden said. “I grew up in Iowa, so this was nothing new. But being in Colorado for over 20 years, I don’t think I ever would’ve expected a tornado in Highlands Ranch. Now it’s just a matter of clean-up.”
Looking around White Bay Drive and the rest of his neighborhood, Ruden said his house was in the direct line of Thursday afternoon’s tornado. With six uprooted trees in his yard, he enlisted the help of a group of landscaping friends to break down and transport the downed trees to dump locations.
Just two miles away, in the Brookfield neighborhood, the Sheets family started repairs on their own tornado aftermath.
Randy Sheets and his wife were at work when the storm hit its peak Thursday — and when the 100-foot cottonwood in their front yard crashed through their house.
“It came in through the living room, took out a couple windows and now the right side of the house is slowly coming down,” Sheets said. “We’re speaking to insurance to figure out what we can clean up now and what we have to hold off on.”
Sheets said the tree also took out his brother’s room upstairs, though they luckily have a spare room for him to sleep in. The rest of the house was relatively undamaged.
Friends and family reached out after the storm, looking to help, and the group was planning to tackle what debris they can carry off the property while they wait to hear back from the insurance company.
However, that may not be their only wait. Tree removal companies across the area are now booked out for weeks.
“Usually we’re about a week out on jobs that we need to do,” said Alex Loula, a supervisor at SavATree. “As of this morning, when we got in, the jobs that they already had called in had us three to four weeks out already. We have about four times our normal workload, and that’s just storm damage, not even regular tree work.”
The Kims, who hired Loula to remove two trees late Friday morning, were able to call the night before and get the service booked for the next day.
“We were just going down a list of companies until we got to one that would answer,” Ho Kim said. “They called us back at 9 a.m. and, luckily, happened to have a crew down the street working already.”
Compared to other families around them in the Eastridge Terrace neighborhood, damage to the Kims’ house was minimal.
Ho Kim’s wife, Susan, said there were several sections of fencing down in the backyard and possible roof and siding damage from the hail, but no major structural damage to the house.
“We’re taking it one step at a time,” Susan Kim said. “Right now it’s the trees, then we call the fence people, the insurance, the painters. I’m just grateful it wasn’t worse.”
Outside of the neighborhood, Douglas County crews continued to clear tree debris from sidewalks and major streets Friday, starting with the hardest hit area between Highlands Ranch Parkway and C-470 and from Broadway to Colorado Boulevard.
Broken, leaning and downed streetlights should be reported to Xcel Energy, according to the Highlands Ranch Metro District.
The company already has received 50-odd reports of damaged light poles and began removing them Friday, Sturgeon Electric foreman Tom Johnson said.
Johnson said he is unsure when the removed streetlights will be replaced.
“The county has issued a disaster declaration to open the door for state support,” Douglas County Commissioner Abe Laydon said in a Friday news release. “In the meantime, we are working with the Highlands Ranch community to provide tree debris drop-off sites.”
Any debris larger than a typical trashcan load should go to the drop-off sites at Highland Heritage Park at 9651 S. Quebec St. and Redstone Park at 3280 Redstone Park Circle. The Highlands Ranch Metro District does not allow fencing to be dropped off at either site.
The drop-off sites opened Friday morning and will remain open indefinitely.
Redstone Park is open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Highland Heritage Park is open from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset.

This weekend, crews will work under the Union Pacific Railroad bridge, pictured here, over US 85, as part of Douglas County’s US 85 Widening project.
Driving near US 85 and Highlands Ranch Parkway this weekend? Please plan around two construction-related road impacts.
US 85 Lane Closures Watch for delays and single lane closures between Norwood and Blakeland drives starting at 10 p.m. Friday, May 19.
These lane closures will allow crews to safely perform roadway and bridge work under the Union Pacific Railroad over US 85. This extended closure will eliminate the need for more than 30 overnight closures as part of the corridor improvements being made by Douglas County and its partners during the US 85 widening and reconstruction project from Highlands Ranch Parkway to north of C-470.
Please give yourself extra time or use alternate routes and pay attention to posted speed limits and signage.
Highlands Ranch Parkway Closure Highlands Ranch Parkway will be fully closed between Bucknell Drive and US 85 from 8 p.m. Friday, May 19, to 5 a.m. Monday, May 22. (Construction crews will maintain access for first responders.)
The closure will allow crews to safely remove and replace the existing underground utilities beneath Highlands Ranch Parkway along US 85. US 85 will not be impacted during this closure.
If weather conditions do not allow this work to take place as originally scheduled, crews will conduct this work at a later date.
Please watch for crews, heed the speed limit, and avoid distracted driving in the work zone.

In partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation, Denver Regional Council of Governments, the Federal Highway Administration, Highlands Ranch Metro District, and Chatfield Basin developers, Douglas County is improving safety and mobility along US 85 from Highlands Ranch Parkway to just north of C-470.

The National Weather Service has issued a preliminary report for the tornado damage in Highlands Ranch. The NWS says the estimate is that Thursday's tornado may have been an EF-1 tornado on the Enhanced Fujita Scale.
The violent storm traveled a total of 6.3 miles across northern Douglas County crossing from west Highlands Ranch to Lone Tree. Estimated peak wind is 97. But, that number may go up after NWS surveys damage in person on Friday. The width of the damage path is estimated at 1/4 mile wide.
In addition, to the tornado in Highlands Ranch a second tornado touched down near Payton northeast of Colorado Springs.
Thursday's storm left a destructive path of hail from Evergreen to Elbert County. Morrison had 2 inch diameter hail the size of eggs. Littleton into north Highlands Ranch had ping pong ball size hail.
If the tornado, wind and hail weren't enough the storm also soaked the south metro area with flooding rains. In some spots as much as 1 to 4 inches of rainfall hit during Thursday's storm.
