There have been two confirmed tornadoes in Wisconsin, and they completely destroyed Evansville’s rural area. Around 5:15 p.m., an EF-1 tornado made landfall in Green County close to Albany, and around 5:40 p.m., an EF-2 tornado with winds as high as 135 mph struck Evansville.

Significant property damage, including destroyed buildings, downed trees, and overturned farm equipment, is reported. There are still numerous closed highways and numerous power outages. Emergency personnel have been working nonstop to assure the safety of the residents, and despite the destruction, only minor injuries have been reported.

The scene, according to Rock County Sheriff Curtis Fell, is “devastating,” with at least 20 homes suffering major damage or destruction. Teams dedicated to emergency management have been dispatched to evaluate the circumstances and offer support to impacted inhabitants.

The Evansville fire station has provided a warming shelter for displaced residents in response to the tragedy. Volunteers have offered support and funds have poured in to help with recovery operations, demonstrating the community’s resiliency in the face of adversity.

The National Weather Service has never before issued tornado warnings for the area in February, before this extraordinary incident. Authorities continue their cleanup and recovery work, urging the public to be cautious and pay attention to safety warnings.
