Two killed in US tornadoes

Chris Fitzgerald, Wisconsin's Barron County Sheriff, said that the tornado smashed the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park located north of Chetek.

"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.

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

Barron County Authorities are asking community members to please not bring any further donations to the emergency shelter located at Mosaic Telecom in Cameron Wisconsin. He directed state agencies and the Wisconsin National Guard to help those affected by the storms.

In Barron County, Wisconsin, a reported tornado that touched down killed at least 1 person and injured 25. "It's awesome that we're not talking about multiple dead people, and the trailers show it".

"We will continue to assess area damage in the mobile home park and other parts of the county", Fitzgerald said in a press release in the early-morning hours of Wednesday. 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.

The enhanced F-scale runs from EF0 to EF5.

The death in Wisconsin this week once again illustrates the extreme danger of being inside a mobile home during severe weather, including tornadoes and even damaging straight-line winds.

When describing the scene, Fitzgerald said it was a "total devastation". Sever was remodeling a home in the mobile home park. Around 3 p.m., heavy rains and hail hit areas in the southeast metro including Inver Grove Heights and Eagan. "When I got back and got back to my trailer, my neighbors, some people were helping the lady out of the trailer and her husband was buried inside", recalls Dale Daily. Yeah, the house is completely gone. I looked outside my door, and I saw the garbage can go flying, and then I went into my living room, and then I saw the trees bending.

"We still have some people unaccounted for and we're trying to determine where they are, if they are somewhere else and OK, or missing", Fitzgerald said. Mayor Jeff Martin in nearby Chetek (sheh-TEK') says turkeys can be seen wandering in the damage. After touring the damage in Chetek on Wednesday, Gov. Scott Walker declared a state of emergency for Barron, Rusk and Jackson counties.

The two tornado deaths from Tuesday's storms bring the nation's 2017 total up to 34 fatalities, more than 2016 in its entirety (18) and nearly as many as 2015 (36), according to Patrick Marsh, the warning coordination meteorologist at the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center.

Another tornado struck in western Oklahoma rural area, but right now has no reports of injuries.
