Tornadoes Flatten Homes and Structures in Wisconsin, Oklahoma

1 killed in reported Wisconsin tornado 25 hurt

At least two people were killed and dozens of others injured Tuesday after tornadoes tore through a mobile home park in Wisconsin and a subdivision in Oklahoma. Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister.

The National Weather Service says its preliminary damage rating for the tornado that destroyed the trailer park was a strong EF2. "We've carried elderly, we've been contacted b several people that want to help", said Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald from the Barron County Sheriff's Department. Those over 18 years of age can volunteer to help clean up the tornado-ravaged mobile home park near Chetek.

"We have several reports in the county of other structures down, trees down and damaged vehicles", Fitzgerald said. KCCI says trees and power lines were down in West Des Moines and severe weather tipped over semi trucks on local roads.

"The roof was gone the walls were gone and all I could see was a black cloud that came over like the top of the house, and just tried to hang on", Jackson said.

"I've lived in Oklahoma nearly 50 years", he said.

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

"The greatest risk of severe thunderstorms, up to a moderate risk, will exist along and northwest of I-44, with hail up to the size of baseballs, damaging winds to 75 miles per hour, and a limited potential for strong tornadoes", forecasters in Tulsa said.

A mobile home is a particularly risky place to be during a tornado, according to the National Weather Service.

Sam Porter, director of Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief, and Anthony Jordan, BGCO executive director-treasurer, met Gov. Mary Fallin, Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak and others in Elk City, surveying tornado damage and connecting with people in the community.

"This is, I think in terms of outright damage, both physical in terms of what it did to the landscape, but also in terms of the damage destroying people's homes I think it's the worst I've seen as governor".

The Storm Prediction Center says strong wind gusts and large, damaging hail are possible throughout the region. Cattle have been killed, but he says he has no immediate reports of human injuries.
