POWER DOWN, CLEAN UP BEGINS AFTER TORNADO

POWER DOWN, CLEAN UP BEGINS AFTER TORNADO

Chippewa County Emergency Management wants people to stay out of Wheaton following a report of a tornado touching down last night.  Eau Claire County Emergency Management posted on Facebook on behalf of Chippewa County early this morning saying they want people to hold off on volunteering because of downed power lines and debris.  Only a few minor injuries have been reported.

Hundreds of people are still without power to the north and west of Eau Claire.  According to Dunn Energy Cooperative, outages are being reported near Wilson, Sand Creek, Lucas, Weston, Red Cedar, Menomonie, Tainter, Colfax, and Wheaton.  Most of the outages are spotty, except in the Wheaton area.  D-E-C says there are over 500 outages in and around the town.
