Houses in Merrill destroyed from tornado

Merrill, WI--  The storm that ripped through the area last night not only leveled businesses in Merrill but homes as well, leaving some people with nothing.

Some home-owners woke up this morning having to start from scratch, and face the many challenges ahead of them. 

Volunteers from across the county have come to support those who need assistance. They have been bringing food and water throughout the day to different neighborhoods and some say the most important thing they can do right now is to get out there and lend a hand to anyone who needs it.

As volunteers bring essential items crews have been cutting down trees, clearing fallen power lines and moving debris off the roads and properties.

Officials have secured many of the damaged neighborhoods.

Homeowners say that watching the community come together with so much support has given them the strength to keep cleaning.
