DENVER — The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for parts of Adams and Denver counties after a confirmed landspout tornado touched down north of Denver International Airport Sunday afternoon.

The warning was canceled around 3 p.m. There have been no reports of damages or injuries.

It's unclear if operations at the airport were affected. However, no evacuations were issued.

Landspout tornadoes tend to be weaker tornadoes and stay on the ground for a shorter amount of time compared to stronger tornadoes.
