TORNADO CLEAN UP CONTINUES

TORNADO CLEAN UP CONTINUES

Governor Tony Evers is opening the door to more state help for Chippewa and Dunn counties after Tuesday’s tornado. The governor was here in our area yesterday afternoon and got a firsthand look at the damage. He also declared a state of emergency. Some numbers are coming out and forecasters say the tornado that hit near the Town of Wheaton was an EF3 storm, with top winds of 165 miles-per-hour.

If you want to lend a hand, we have details for volunteers. Chippewa County’s Emergency Management office says anyone who can and wants to help clean-up from Tuesday’s storms met at the Wheaton Fire Department in Elk Mound this morning. All volunteers must be 18 or older.
