(7/23/13) The National Weather Service confirms that a tornado touched down late yesterday afternoon in far western Wisconsin.

It damaged trees in the Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge in far southwest Trempealeau County. A survey team said the twister touched down around 5:15 p-m with peak winds of 70-to-75 miles an hour. It was on the ground for just over a mile, covering a path 40 yards wide. The tornado also went over the nearby Mississippi River for a time. The Weather Service rated it an E-F-Zero tornado. Funnel clouds were also spotted near Augusta in Eau Claire County and Deerbrook in Langlade County late yesterday. Forecasters say our next chance of rain is tomorrow – and the next heavy storms could roll in on Thursday
