CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Fire officials are blaming the collapse of a silo in eastern New Mexico on a wet microburst that brought rain and winds up to 70 miles per hour.

The Clovis News Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1HKfykf) the silo crashed into a truck Monday afternoon and sent one person to the hospital with minor injuries.

Peavey Mills owns the silo, and a company official says no employees were injured in the incident.

The National Weather Service recorded 2 inches of rain in the area.
