20 Mai, 2017, 00:03 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Fire Chaplain Danny Ringer told reporters late Tuesday that the storm destroyed 40 homes and severely damaged up to 75 others.

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

Possible tornadoes were spotted over Weyerhaeuser, Wisconsin, near McLean, Texas, and in Bucklin, Kansas, Tuesday.

On Tuesday, tornadoes were spotted in several states due to a massive storm system, and one person was killed in Wisconsin when a tornado struck a trailer park near Chetek. The storm also brought numerous reports of large hail and strong winds.

One neighborhood over from the mobile home park, a family was cleaning up a yard full of debris after witnessing the power of Tuesday night's storm. There were at least 25 other people injured when the tornado hit the Prairie Lakes Estates trailer park, and many people living at the trailer park have been left homeless.

But, Fitzgerald told CBS Minnesota, "The outpouring of support has been tremendous".

At least one child is among the injured.

The preliminary damage rating for the tornado is a strong EF2, according to the National Weather Service.

The violent tornado packing 120-130mph winds went right through the heart of Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Park.

Twelve area ambulances, six area fire departments and multiple law enforcement and first responders came to the scene, according to Fitzgerald.

A mobile home park resident described the storm to WEAU-TV. About 20 to 30 Elk City area homes and businesses were damaged and an official said crews were out overnight to help residents. The NWS has confirmed one person was killed in Barron County and more than 25 other people were hurt.

Beckham County Emergency Management Director Lonnie Risenhoover (RYE'-zuhn-hoo-vur) said "a lot of tornado damage" has been reported to the subdivision and surrounding rural area.

Sheriff Fitzgerald says control of the trailer park was turned back to the owners, who will allow residents to retrieve their belongings during daylight hours.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said the storm started late Tuesday afternoon in Wisconsin into the evening, then tracked into the panhandle of Oklahoma and before heading to Kansas.

Chetek Mayor Jeff Martin said he couldn't believe what the storm left behind.

A mobile home is a particularly unsafe place to be during a tornado, according to the National Weather Service.
