A tornado hit the State of Wisconsin on late Tuesday afternoon, May 16. The tornado swept through the Cameron/Chetek area destroying a mobile home park and also a nearby turkey farm. The disaster left 25 injured and one fatality; and several mobile homes completely wiped out. Currently, the first responders are doing what needs to be done. There are reports of several tornado touchdowns around the affected area, so there may be other regions also that will need assistance with the Recovery efforts. Wisconsin ACS Director, Alice Garrett, will be in contact with local authorities and WI VOAD to assess the needs of the communities. Please let us remember all those who have been affected by this tornado and also other disasters in the past few weeks.
