Tornadoes strike from Texas to Wisconsin

The county plans to open a volunteer reception center on Friday to coordinate trailer park clean up efforts.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told several media that the tornado damaged the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park 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. No other injuries were reported.

In Iowa, the storms damaged homes and other buildings and knocked down trees, limbs and power poles, leaving thousands of people without power.

Barton County spokeswoman Donna Zimmerman said the tornado that formed Tuesday night near Pawnee Rock remained on the ground for up to 15 miles before dissipating west of Hoisington. He said she is an adult and is in serious condition. Some people remain trapped in their homes. He estimates the park had around 50 homes. The victim's identity has not been released, although officials said he was in a vehicle at the time. The sheriff said, "I would describe it as total destruction". The National Weather Service reported a touchdown in the area just after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. A tornado destroyed homes in a western Oklahoma subdivision and killed a man who was trying to flee to safety.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Officials say a tornado has touched down in a rural area of southwestern Oklahoma with no injuries or damage reported. He says that in some cases, the responders left their own storm-damaged homes to help search the mobile home park.

According to the National Weather Service, at least 3 tornadoes have been confirmed.

Authorities say at least 40 homes were destroyed.

At least two people were killed and more than two dozen others were injured as stormy weather stretched from Texas to Wisconsin Tuesday. A tornado killed a man in Wisconsin. The circulation and high winds in a tornado can easily rip or even toss a mobile home, which frequently would not have a foundation.

Storm chances increase in the Dallas-Fort Worth area early Wednesday, with damaging wind gusts possible along a squall line that will move into the western counties of North Texas after midnight.

"There is definitely the potential for all the severe weather hazards", including tornadoes and hail, Hultquist said.

The declaration covers Barron, Rusk, and Jackson counties.

The State Emergency Operations Center remains open with Wisconsin Emergency Management, Wisconsin National Guard, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Wisconsin Department of Administration and Wisconsin State Patrol. "But in these situations when you have a tornado like this you get a lot of rainstorms coming in the back side of it and that make the recovery effort so much hard".

"There was a little voice in my head that said we need to leave, and we got out just in time", said Dale Dailey, who lives in the area where the tornado hit.
