Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead

Devin Feuerhelm told KMSP-TV that his sister, Lenna Samuelson, lives at Prairie Lakes Estates with her two daughters, Ashley and Brenna.

Amazingly, the infant grandson escaped with just a couple of scratches, he said.

"It's a mess", Fitzgerald said while requesting at least four more ambulances to the scene.

Authorities said rescue workers planned to be at the trailer park near Chetek all night.

Danny Ringer, spokesman for the city between Oklahoma City and Amarillo, Texas, said there were multiple injuries, but he didn't give a specific number. Another was reported by firefighters about 11 miles north-northeast of Madge in Harmon County, he said.

Zimmerman says one person suffered minor injuries and that the tiny community of Pawnee Rock is "very fortunate" that the twister struck a largely rural area. She recalled grabbing the dog as it ran to them as the house began to come apart.

At least one person, a 46-year-old male, was killed and an estimated 25 others were injured by a severe storm, including a tornado. The governor was joined by state and local officials and emergency responders.

"It sounded like a machine gun", a resident said.

"Please monitor the Barron County Sheriff's Department Facebook Page for further updates". Some people who live in the area are still unaccounted for.

"My thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the tornado in Elk City", Gov. Mary Fallin tweeted.

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

The National Weather Service reported a tornado touchdown in the area just after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. A tornado killed a man in Wisconsin.

The storms not only spawned tornadoes, but generated hail the size of baseballs and softballs.

Pritchard said there was a report of a tornado in Rusk County.

Recovery efforts are underway northwest Wisconsin. The storm struck a subdivision Tuesday just south of Elk City, Okla., about 110 miles west of Oklahoma City.

Numerous other homes, shed and farm buildings were destroyed in the area of Prairie Lake township.

A mobile home is a particularly risky place to be during a tornado, according to the National Weather Service.

Sri Lanka confirms 100 dead in mudslides; 99 missing
A Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) airman died after falling from a helicopter during a flood rescue operation in Neluwa area in Galle. The wettest time of the year in Sri Lanka's south is usually during the southern monsoon, from May to September.

Emergency crews are assessing the damage, but Fitzgerald estimates the damages to be in the millions.

The damage was extensive.

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

The Elk City Police Chief told News9 some people are still trapped inside their homes. "In aerial footage of the damage, it's hard to tell where structures once stood".

He says hail larger than softballs fell Tuesday. The high winds during a tornado can rip a mobile home, which frequently would not have a foundation, from its moorings.

"It's all leveled. All the way to the road", a resident said.

It devastated 50 to 60 trailer homes and injured 25 people, 17 of whom were taken to hospitals.

Strong winds caused a small plane to flip over at Eppley Airport in Omaha, Nebraska, Tuesday, NWS reports. The first one died when the tornado hit a moveable home park in Wisconsin and the other died when a twister smashed a housing division in Oklahoma.
