1 dead in western Wisconsin after apparent tornado

At least one killed as tornado tears though dozens of Oklahoma homes: media

The final tornado to touch down in the Texas Panhandle was spotted by storm chasers in Collingsworth County at 5:50 p.m. He said he and his wife drove away to safety and returned just after the twister left the area to find the park in ruins.

"This was a super cell that developed, a discreet storm", he said Tuesday night.

No deaths have been reported for the other tornadoes.

"If it had been later in the night, it could have been much more tragic just because of where people were at in and around the region", Walker said.

According to media reports, from the effects of the storm killed two people in the States of Oklahoma and Wisconsin.

Home after home was gutted by intense winds, tree tops were stripped clean and memories were spread out all over the ground of the Prairie Lake Estates mobile home park. Officials are now assessing what affected residents may need.

Tornado watches were issued by the National Weather Service for a number of areas throughout the evening, including parts of Chippewa, Barron and Rusk counties.

SkyFOX flew above the Prairie Lake Estates mobile home park which took a direct hit. Also, a tornado struck a rural area in western Oklahoma, leaving damage in its wake but no immediate reports of injuries.

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.

There, high winds destroyed some homes and several outbuildings.

Over a dozen tornadoes were reportedly spawned by powerful storms that raced through a swath of the central USA stretching from Texas to the Great Lakes on Tuesday evening. A tornado touched down near Chetek Wisconsin and traveled 30 miles to Conrath. "I thank the Wisconsin National Guard, Wisconsin Emergency Management, and all state agencies for their coordinated response to this emergency".

A confirmed tornado destroyed about 20 homes in central Kansas.

This item has been corrected to reflect that the tornado killed a man in northwestern Wisconsin, not the northeast of the state.

While it's tough to discover those personal items, likely buried beneath the rubble, it's considerably less hard to find someone who lived here who isn't looking forward. NWS reported that the tornado was "brief" and left behind no damage.

Assessment crews were headed out Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage.

Fitzgerald says his department will continue to assess damage in the park and other parts of the county.

One man was found dead, 45 year old Erik Gavin. Ringer also told the AP the storm destroyed 40 homes and severely damaged 50 to 75 others. Jeff Martin, Chetek Mayor told KSTP-TV that several emergency vehicles have gone to trailer park.

Utility companies in Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Iowa reported more than 15,600 customers were without power early Wednesday morning.

Fallin toured Elk City on Wednesday afternoon as families sorted through the remains of their homes.

He said her sister also had her 2-month-old grandson, Nolan, in the home when the storm hit, and they had nowhere to go but the bathtub.
