Wisconsin and Oklahoma tornadoes killed and injured people


“It’s pretty bad. We have at least one deceased so far and we’re still in a search pattern,” Wisconsin’s Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told media describing the scene as “total devastation.” The National Weather Service reported the tornado touched down in the area just after 5:30 p.m. All ambulances and firefighters in Barron County were called to the area. Many people were trapped inside their homes. The park had around 50 homes. Several law enforcement agencies and the Red Cross rushed to help residents in the area. The storms could continue into Wednesday, but CBS Minnesota meteorologist Matt Brickman said that drier, cooler conditions are expected to move in by Thursday. Another tornado struck a rural area in western Oklahoma, leaving damage in its wake. The storm knocked out telephone service. A person is known dead.
