Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead

Kelley Robertson | 19 May, 2017, 04:28

In a report released today, the U.S. Drought Monitor has all of northeast Oklahoma free of any drought classification.

Gavin's longtime friend and neighbor of the mobile home park, Darrin Seever, is speaking out about the kind of man Gavin was.

Walker will survey what's left of the Prairie Lakes Estates Mobile Home Park near Chetek Wednesday afternoon.

Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin tweeted her thoughts and prayers to those affected.

A mobile home is a particularly risky place to be during a tornado, according to the National Weather Service. The National Weather Service reported the tornado touched down in the area just after 5:30 p.m.

As cleanup and recovery begins following the Chetek, Wisconsin tornado, many are wondering how they can help.

Governor Scott Walker declared a State of Emergency for Barron, Jackson, and Rusk counties following severe storms producing heavy rain, damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes. The area stretches from the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma, western Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa into Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Rusk County officials have declared a State of Emergency. At least one entire block of trailers is gone.

The storm also knocked out telephone service into and out of the city, while school officials have canceled classes for Wednesday. Emergency management officials are conducting a countywide damage assessment.

Bynum, 48, said he was doing what many people do when the weather picks up: watching it in his yard.

About 20 to 25 people were injured in the tornado, Ringer added.

Martin also says several turkey barns in the area were hit hard.

National Weather Service meteorologist Rick Smith says two supercells began in the Texas Panhandle on Tuesday then moved into Oklahoma.

Oklahoma's News9 reported the tornado could have been an EF-2 or EF-3, and said early estimates tracked the tornado's path as about a quarter of a mile wide. Authorities said it appears he was fleeing his home when his vehicle was thrown several hundred feet.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, is classifying Thursday's storm chances as high risk in parts of Oklahoma and Kansas - the most severe risk category.

He says hail larger than softballs fell Tuesday.

First responders searched through the rubble overnight.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald gave the figures to WQOW-TV, the Leader-Telegram of Eau Claire and the Star Tribune of Minneapolis.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army are assisting those who lost their homes.

ELK CITY, Okla. (AP) - Residents of an Oklahoma subdivision and a Wisconsin trailer park that were leveled by deadly tornadoes sifted through what remained of their homes and possessions Wednesday, even as forecasters warned of another round of powerful storms on the horizon.

The storms hit late in the afternoon Tuesday and into the evening, leveling the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Park near Chetek, Wisconsin.
