Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead

In northwest Wisconsin, one person was killed and 25 were injured when a reported tornado hit a mobile home park, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said.

Authorities have released the name of a man who was killed when a tornado tore through a mobile home park in northwestern Wisconsin.

Tornadoes reportedly touched down in four other states, including Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Wisconsin, killing two people and injuring dozens of others. "There's a whole row where there should be trailers that there's nothing but debris".

Elk City Public Schools has canceled classes for Wednesday due to the damage.

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

The Wisconsin tornado was part of a huge swath of the Plains and Upper Midwest threatened with severe weather.

"There is definitely the potential for all the severe weather hazards", including tornadoes and hail, Hultquist said. "I thank the Wisconsin National Guard, Wisconsin Emergency Management, and all state agencies for their coordinated response to this emergency".

At noon Wednesday, some residents were allowed back into the trailer park, officials with Wisconsin Emergency Operations Center said. "We have at least one deceased so far and we're still in a search pattern".

The weather service says the twister packed winds of 120 to 130 miles per hour, or even slightly stronger, when it hit the park near Chetek. No details were immediately available about the person who was hurt there. One home collapsed and first responders rescued an occupant.

Stocks with high EPS growth rates compared with year-ago levels suggest a company has products or services in strong demand. Kimco Realty Corporation (KIM ) has 432.63 Million shares outstanding and 414.32 Million shares were floated in market.

Assessment crews were headed out Wednesday to determine the extent of the damage.

One person in a auto was killed, the station reported, citing an emergency response official.

Several poultry barns at a turkey processing plant across the street were badly damaged, and turkeys could be seen wandering in the debris.

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.

Images shot from a helicopter for CNN affiliate KFOR showed homes with their roofs ripped off.

Severe storms, plus more tornadoes, are expected in Texas on Thursday.

More than half of the deaths have occurred in mobile homes.

Firefighters work the site of the damage after a tornado ripped through Prairie Lake Estates trailer home park, just north of Chetek, Wis., Tuesday, May 16, 2017. The Storm Prediction Center, which specializes in forecasting and gathering data on tornadoes, says that high winds during a tornado can rip a mobile home without a foundation from its moorings.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army are assisting those who lost their homes. Approximately 40 trailer homes were destroyed at the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Park in Cameron, as well as a nearby turkey farm, according to Wisconsin Emergency Management.
