An EF- 1 tornado tore through Walworth County on August 18, and it left a trail of destruction in its path.
A second tornado has been confirmed in Waukesha county.
Today the National Weather Service surveyed the damage.
The tornado had winds at least 110 MPH. It's very random but destructive just the same.
Storm sirens were not activated as the National Weather Service did not issue a tornado warning for the City of Lake Geneva.
It could have been much worse. These are words being uttered by many in Lake Geneva one day after a strong EF-1 tornado hit with really no warning.
There were no reported injuries but major damage to an industrial park right off Highway 120. Six buildings heavily affected.
With the intense winds and a storm path estimated at 200 yards
City of Lake Geneva Police patrolled neighborhoods to assess any damage due to the severe thunderstorm and did locate numerous trees down in the Seminary Park and Dunn Field areas. Police also took reports of damage to trees in Geneva Square and minor damage to the front doors of the Aurora Clinic at that location.
