Sheriff: At least 20 injured when tornado hits trailer park

The Storm Prediction Center's latest forecast predicts "strong, long-lived tornadoes" and softball-sized hail.

The National Weather Service says that there is an enhanced risk for strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

The length of its path is still being determined, but there is a miles-long trail of destruction through Barron County and into neighboring Rusk County, Fitzgerald said.

Walker visited a trailer park near the city of Chetek on Wednesday afternoon where one male resident was killed and 25 people were injured Tuesday night. It paves the way for state agencies to provide assistance to those impacted by the storm that destroyed 38 mobile homes near Chetek, and badly damaged almost a dozen more.

At least two people were killed and dozens of others injured Tuesday after tornadoes tore through a mobile home park in Wisconsin and a subdivision in Oklahoma.

Chetek Mayor Jeff Martin tells KSTP-TV that numerous emergency vehicles have gone to the trailer park.

"We escaped the tornado with a few minor injures but sustained heavy damage to public and private properties.(If) anybody's offering assistance, please call the sheriff's office at (715) 532-2189", Wallace said.

"There was a little voice in my head that said we need to leave, and we got out just in time", said Dale Dailey, who lives in the area where the tornado hit. Fitzgerald also says there are at least 25 injuries reported.

There were 26 reports of tornadoes Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service, as a massive severe storm system tore through an area from the South Plains of Texas to the Great Lakes. Fitzgerald says they lifted walls off people who were trapped.

"Somebody was watching out for us because it went all the way around us, and here we are", said White.

Elk City, Oklahoma also took a direct hit.

"My wife said the power was out so I figured it was just lightning happened".
