WAKE UP WISCONSIN (WAOW)--A tornado was reported in Austin, Minnesota last night.

I lived and worked in Austin before moving to Wausau.

According to my former co-workers who work at the ABC affiliate there, KAAL-TV, power is still out this morning. On the news, they were reading stories from paper scripts.

The storm uprooted trees, downed power lines, and sent debris flying. Cars were flipped onto their sides.

At least one man suffered minor injuries.

The damage estimates are totaling millions of dollars, and the Salvation army is sending volunteers to help deal with the aftermath.
