Drone captures stunning footage of deadly Wisconsin tornado

There were reports of possible tornadoes in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, the National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center said.

Walker will survey what's left of the Prairie Lakes Estates Mobile Home Park near Chetek Wednesday afternoon where 46-year-old Eric Gavin was killed.

In Wisconsin, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told several media that the tornado damaged the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park north of Chetek.

The National Weather Service confirmed that the tornado started in Wisconsin at around 5:30 p.m.

Shards of glass were flying at them like bullets, Tyson told the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. "We have at least one deceased so far and we're still in a search pattern".

Barron County Sheriff Christopher Fitzgerald earlier in the morning praised the efforts of first responders.

"A few trailers on the perimeter are still standing, but everything in the middle is completely gone", said Chetek police Officer Cody Stauner, one of dozens of law enforcement and emergency officials who responded to the disaster site.

The governor told reporters it was "nothing short of a miracle" that more people weren't hurt. Debris littered the ground across the community and a large amount of homes were either severely damaged or destroyed.

Residents of the Prairie Lake trailer park have been picking through the rubble looking for anything salvageable.

Israeli spies upset by Trump intel-sharing with Russia
Trump said in February he was not necessarily wedded to that idea, saying he was happy with any deal that "both parties like". His decision to put his son-in-law Jared Kushner at the heart of the peace process is an example of his unpredictability.

A mobile home is among one of the most unsafe places to be during a tornado.

Devin Feuerhelm told KMSP-TV that his sister, Lenna Samuelson, lives in the park with her two daughters, Ashley and Brenna.

One person died at the mobile home park, the Wisconsin Emergency Operations Center said in a statement late Tuesday.

"You can just see where the path went through", Fitzgerald said Wednesday. Samuelson's daughters suffered minor injuries, and the mother suffered a gash on her head, but he said all are expected to be fine.

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

National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Umscheid says radar images suggest the storm may have produced other brief, rain-wrapped tornadoes as it moved over rural farmland.

Significant and "intense" tornadoes were forecast for the Southern Plains through Friday.

Even those who were not home at the time of the tornado were still on edge, like Misty La Rue.

Southwest and Central Kansas is apparently in the bullseye for severe weather later today, including tornadoes, large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds.
