The tornado count in Wisconsin on April 10, 2011 now stands at 15. Originally, it was 14. The additional tornado occurred in far northeastern Green Lake County.
In the past couple weeks, we re-examed severe weather spotter reports, a public damage report, and our WSR-88D Doppler radar imagery. In fact, one spotter-chaser actually saw the tornado suck dirt out of a farm field. Minor damage was noted to a few tree branches, some lawn furniture, and a wooden structure on Meadowbrook Rd.
Preliminary data follows...
EF0 - wind about 80 mph
3.5 SSE Berlin to 3.4 SE Berlin (northeast movement)
Path length about 2 miles
Maximum width about 50 yards
