At Least 2 Dead as Severe Storms, Tornadoes Hit US Midsection

Helicopter video from Minneapolis television stations WCCO and KARE showed extensive damage at the trailer park, with several homes reduced to rubble.

Along the line, a massive tornado struck Elk City, Oklahoma early in the evening.

Emergency crews have marked every trailer that has been searched, and now, they're going back again stopping, listening and then physically lifting the debris and searching for anyone who might be trapped. The National Weather Service reported it touched down in the area just after 5:30 p.m.

People impacted by tornadoes in Elk City were permitted to return to their homes with day passes valid between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. CDT on Wednesday.

There were at least 25 other people injured when the tornado hit the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park, and many people living at the trailer park have been left homeless.

One person was killed after a tornado ripped through parts of Barron County.

Manning said Mikles, a long-time county resident, had called the sheriff's office about another matter before the tornado approached. He confirmed there is one fatality and at least 25 people who are injured.




A wide swath of damage extended east into neighboring Rusk County where seven to eight homes were damaged near Bruce, Fitzgerald said.

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.

"There are several more people and businesses to thank for the support, food, water, et cetera, and in the coming days I hope to be able to thank them", Fitzgerald said.

The storm knocked out telephone services into and out of the city.

Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wisconsin) toured the devastation in Barron County on Wednesday afternoon. The National Weather Service said spotters reported a tornado four miles northwest of Chetek at 5:35 p.m., and another five miles southwest of Weyerhaeuser at 6:15 p.m.

Another tornado struck a rural area in western Oklahoma, leaving damage in its wake but no immediate reports of injuries. Hultquist said a low-pressure system moving north from Nebraska on Wednesday was expected to bring strong thunderstorms to southeastern Minnesota and western portions of central and southern Wisconsin.
