The clean-up continues in Marinette County, where an EF-1 tornado killed a man near Wausaukee late Friday. Governor Scott Walker toured the area Sunday and emergency officials say they’ll know within a week whether the damage was enough to qualify for state disaster aid.
The storm damaged several homes and other structures and took the life of 43-year-old Douglas Brem who was killed while working inside a mobile home.
It was also a busy weekend for first responders in the Kenosha-Racine area. Calls for service included a fatal accident involving a 67-year old western Racine County man that may have started with a medical emergency.
Kenosha got pummeled again by a brief but powerful storm cell that downed a few trees less than two months after dozens were felled with a big lakefront assault.
There was the 18-month-old boy who fell about 30-feet from the grandstand at the Kenosha County Fair, and was not hurt, although taken to Children’s Hospital as a precaution. Throw in a couple of fires, including one that required mutual aid along the Racine-Kenosha County line, and it was almost a typical summer weekend in the far corner of southeast Wisconsin.
