"Strong storms:" Cascade calls in volunteers to help with cleanup efforts

“Strong storms: “ Cascade calls in volunteers to help with cleanup efforts


Several communities are trying to clean-up after Tuesday’s storms.

The Village of Cascade in Sheboygan County has declared a state of emergency.

There are uprooted trees on just about every block and property, also downed light poles in some areas.

A tornado has not been confirmed, but footage from SKY DRONE 58 shows the path and damage of the strong storm.

Much of the village is without power. Officials said could be days before electricity is available again.

Village authorities had to coordinate volunteers to help them with clean-up efforts.

“There was so much damage, there’s not a residence in town that might not have a tree blown over, so any extra people including these volunteer fire departments that came in last night and today that came in to help. This isn’t something this little village could do itself,” said Jason Liermann, Cascade Police Chief.

Meanwhile, a confirmed EF-1 tornado touched down in Fond du Lac County, causing extensive damage throughout the area, including to a farm in Leroy.  The metal roof of the barn was blown off, also to the silos.
