Tornado hits resort in Wascott WI

The owner of the cabin came to let us know a tornado was headed our way and to get in the cabins now. We just made it in and the trees were falling right at the cabin and all around us. When it was over trees were up rooted boats were torn from the docks, some cabins and campers were quite bad. No one was hurt. Most of the people in the campground got out of their campers and made it to the Bar before the storm.

I was next to Red Lake on Crotty Lake when the wall cloud came in. I put the boat in high gear to reach the dock. Nephew had a hold of the dock and the wife a hold on the nephew when the wind hit. Very little damage and we are only 1/2 mile away.
