(KSL TV) A series of microbursts and thunderstorms caused thousands of dollars in damage last night in Utah county.

In Payson residents reported seeing a tornado touch down -- and in Santaquin the storm brought warnings of mudslides on hills nearly consumed by wildfire.

Throughout the county large trees were uprooted. In Springville one of those trees contained a hidden beehive and sent a swarm of the angry insects into the air.

Luckily no one was injured in last night's storms. Clean up in the area is expected to take a couple of days.
