Tornadoes cause damage in Wisconsin, Oklahoma

May 25, 2017, 02:24

The weather service said it received reports of more than two dozen tornado sightings Tuesday night across the five states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister, although few details were available.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told several media that the tornado damaged the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park north of Chetek.

"There were six to eight trailers in a row, now there's nothing there but debris", the sheriff said.

Numerous homes at the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park were destroyed.

Two people died in a tornado in on Tuesday that took place in Wisconsin and Oklahoma.

Two people were killed Tuesday, May 16, 2017- one in Wisconsin and another in Oklahoma - following tornadoes and severe storms that ripped through several states.

The south side of Elk City was hit hardest by one storm, said Mayor Bill Helton.

The victim, whose name hasn't been released, had been inside a vehicle in a rural area south of Elk City, said Lonnie Risenhoover, the county's emergency management director.

A man who lost his home when a deadly tornado destroyed a trailer park in northwestern Wisconsin says he helped search for survivors afterward.

"It's a mess", Fitzgerald told the Leader-Telegram of Eau Claire. "I ran to the bathroom and I came out and saw this", Sarah Zurn who lives at Prarie Lake Estates Mobile Home Park told WEAU 13 News.

"Somebody was watching out for us because it went all the way around us, and here we are", said White. Cattle are killed, but there is no report of people being injured.

"The storm threat into Thursday night can unfold into a very unsafe situation as multiple tornadoes are likely to be spawned by rotating supercell thunderstorms", according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

Another tornado was captured on video near Mclean, Texas, though no injuries or significant damage were immediately reported.

"We have a lot of teams out in the field right now, trying to assess the damage, trying to get folks as much help as they need and try to recover personal items, from the damage as quickly as possible", said Pritchard. "I thought we'd be digging for people for days".

Primary threats include several tornadoes, widespread large hail with some very large isolated hail up to 4 inches in diameter and scattered, damaging winds with potential gusts to 75 miles per hour.

Other tornadoes in the eastern Texas Panhandle have downed power lines and utility poles, but there were no immediate reports of injuries.

Kurtz says storms should begin to develop between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. across west north Texas and into southwestern Oklahoma.
