At Least 2 Dead, Dozens Injured After Tornadoes Hit Wisconsin, Oklahoma

At Least 2 Dead, Dozens Injured After Tornadoes Hit Wisconsin, Oklahoma

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says at least 20 people were injured when a tornado hit a mobile home park near Chetek in western Wisconsin.

Authorities have identified the man who was killed by a Tuesday night twister, Beckham County Sheriff Derek Manning said.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker was scheduled to view the damage Wednesday afternoon. Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister, although details were lacking.

The National Weather Service has confirmed the storm damage in the Chetek, Wisconsin area was caused by a tornado.

In total, the Barron County Sheriff's Office believes 15 homes are a complete loss. KCCI says trees and power lines were down in West Des Moines and severe weather tipped over semi trucks on local roads.

The Red Cross set up an emergency shelter Tuesday night in the Great Bend city auditorium but officials said no one used it. Volunteers with the Red Cross, Methodist Church and United Way have begun cleaning up. Shards of glass were flying at them like bullets, Tyson said: "When your house comes apart like that, there's no place to go".

Assessment crews were headed out Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage. In 2011, when devastating tornadoes struck in Joplin, Missouri, and in Alabama and MS, 111 of the 551 people killed nationwide in tornadoes, or 20 percent, were in mobile homes, according to the Storm Prediction Center website.

Dale Daily, 61, said he heard the warning siren about a half-hour before the tornado hit the mobile home park. "We estimate that more than 100 homes have been severely damaged or destroyed".

The tornado damaged the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park north of Chetek.

Damaging wind gusts between 60 and 70 miles per hour caused extensive tree and power line damage and left thousands without power.

The region could be in for more potentially damaging storms.

The weather service's Storm Prediction Center in Oklahoma said storms with the potential to spawn tornadoes and dump large hail stones could hit the region Thursday.
