With some area municipalities reporting over four inches of rainfall on Wednesday and dealing with thunderstorms and tornado warnings, most communities escaped major damages. Algoma City Administrator Jeff Wiswell says it was a challenge to keep up with the deluge of rain.
The Perry Street area had the most flooding, according to Wiswell. A tornado warning around 4:30 Wednesday afternoon also forced dozens of campers and mobile park residents to seek shelter at City Hall, which was formerly the Emergency Management Center in Kewaunee County. Seven tornadoes reportedly touchdown in Northeastern Wisconsin on Wednesday, but none in Kewaunee or Door Counties.
