More about Ladysmith
Anybody from this part of the world on VT? I know we have some Wisconsinites on here . . .
My dad grew up near here and went to highschool in Ladysmith. They had a terrible tornado yesterday and many, many buildings were damaged. Anyone out that way have any first hand knowledge? Fortunately no one was killed
We were actually driving from Chetek to Madison when it touched down. I am a trained storm spotter and we thought about trying to run it down, but then we decided against it. It had been too long of a weekend, and we weren't really on the game to be messing with Mother Nature.
I have some contacts in the National Weather Service and Skywarn... I'll pass along any info I receive.
Re: Re: Tornado
Yikes--glad you were headed away from the storm! My dad spoke to some relatives in the Bruce/Holcombe area and it sounds like it was pretty isolated. He hasn't been able to get an answer from the relatives in Ladysmith, but the phone rings--that's surely a good sign. I'm sure they are out surveying damage or helping clean up.
Glad you missed the bad stuff, Conifer! I've never experienced a tornado (in spite of my name!).
I heard on the news that it hit without warning and the tornado sirens didn't even go off but nobody was seriously injured or killed. So some people may be without homes, but at least everyone is alive and ok and that's the important thing.
Yes - another Wisconsinite here!
What happened in Ladysmith was shocking. I still cannot believe how extensive the damage was! Plus, later that night, another tornado went through Fond du Lac Co. - thank God the storm died down by the time it headed towards my neck of the woods (in Mequon).
Re: Re: Tornado
From the reports, it sounds like the storm front spawned a number of tornados. Glad you were out of harm's way. My dad finally, last night, got word that his relatives there are all fine and no one suffered any severe damage (although one cousin reported that if she lived one block over, her house would be history). He's headed out there tomorrow for a trip he's had planned for weeks.
When I was in highschool, our house in Illinois was destroyed by a tornado (as were a dozen or so houses in our Chicago suburb.) It was horrible, at the time, but the after effect was an extremely close neighborhood -- which continued for years and years until many of the homeowners retired and moved away from the area. People do step in and help you when you are smacked with something as devastating as this. The great fortune is that most of the destruction is to things as opposed to people and their health. "Things" can be replaced. We're on this earth to take care of each other, and having been through one of these things, I know it made everyone in my family the kind of neighbor who will always be there for others.
