Storm Damage



Severe storms with high winds moving through the Winona area have knocked over campers and uprooted trees at a campground near Prairie du Chien.  Authorities say no one was injured when a possible tornado touched down at the Jelly Stone Campground in the town of Bagley Wednesday night.
 
Fire Chief Fred White tells WKBT-TV several trailers were on their sides and downed power lines left about half the town without power.  Crawford County emergency managers suspect the damage was caused by a tornado, but the National Weather Service has not confirmed that.
 
Richland County Emergency Management officials say several businesses in Richland Center were damaged by the storm. In Trempealeau County, there are reports of scattered trees down and power outages. A pole barn also came down along Highway 53 between Blair and Whitehall.

Scattered power outages and downed trees were reported in Winona, as well.  It's not believed that anyone was injured.
