Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead

Tornadoes in Wisconsin, Oklahoma leave 2 dead

Right now, it appears we will have a very vigorous line of storms moving through which may limit the tornado threat, but that is still several days away so is certainly subject to change.

Meanwhile, northwest Oklahoma and parts of south-central Kansas are in the "moderate" risk category - the second highest - for severe weather on Thursday, according to the Storm Prediction Center in Norman. Any storms that make it to the metro could also contain damaging wind and hail. A spotty tornado can not be ruled out either as storms initially develop.

There remains a chance for a few storms to develop before 3 AM across far northern Iowa.

The storms hit Wisconsin late Tuesday afternoon and into the evening, levelling the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Park near Chetek, which is about 110 miles (177 kilometres) northeast of Minneapolis.

Expect storm development to start with isolated to scattered thunderstorms along the dryline in western Texas and Oklahoma then move to the east.

"There is definitely the potential for all the severe weather hazards", including tornadoes and hail, Hultquist said. He said his sister also had a 2-month-old grandson, Nolan, in the home when the storm hit, and they had nowhere to go but the bathtub.
