NWS confirms Wood Co. storm damage caused by tornado

By Heather Sawaski

WOOD COUNTY (WAOW) -- Some damage brought on by storms that tore through parts of our area earlier this week was, in fact, from a tornado.

The National Weather Service confirmed Saturday the touchdown of one tornado in Wood County Wednesday evening. The brief touchdown happened about 5 miles west of Pittsville.

Other areas across north central Wisconsin also saw heavy damage. However, meteorologists believe that to be caused mostly by high winds.
