Sheriff: 1 dead after tornado hits Wisconsin trailer park

Tornado in Oklahoma

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

The majority of damage occurred on the south side of the city, the Elk City Police Department said in a statement. "Then we will assess the damage we have several other areas in the county that has damage", Fitzgerald said.

A line of severe thunderstorms struck the central United States on Tuesday, leaving a trail of destruction from Texas to Wisconsin.

One person died and at least 25 were injured as a tornado hit the Barron County of the mid-western state of Wisconsin, local media reported on Wednesday, citing local Sheriff Chris Firzgerald, APA reports quoting the Washington Post. But Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters at the scene late Tuesday that one person was known dead from the twister.

Forecasters say more strong winds and hail are expected throughout the region. The area stretches from the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma, western Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa into Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service said spotters reported a tornado 4 miles northwest of Chetek at 5:35 p.m., and another 5 miles west-southwest of Weyerhaeuser at 6:15 p.m.

Chetek Mayor Jeff Martin told KSTP-TV that numerous emergency vehicles went to the trailer park.

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. One confirmed tornado was reported near a small town southeast of Dodge City, although there were no immediate reports of damage. He says some homes and outbuildings have been damaged severely and utility poles and lines are down.

In Oklahoma, another tornado damaged much of a subdivision on the southern fringe of Elk City.
