Local crops withstand storm

Farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties were able to let out a sigh of relief after only small cases of crop damage were found following the weekend’s storms. High winds and precipitation led to power outages and flash flooding across northeast Wisconsin. In Forestville, Paul Wallace was able to make sure his dairy barns were closed up before the storms hit on Friday night. He is thankful they didn’t get hit as hard as other areas did.

The late cherry harvest may have actually saved some trees from being knocked over according to Wood Orchard owner Steve Wood. He says the immature fruit kept the trees more resistant to the high winds.

According to the Wisconsin Public Service outage map, power has been restored to much of Door and Kewaunee Counties as thousands across the state are still recovering from the weekend’s storms that produced at least four tornadoes according to the National Weather Service.
