Episode Narrative A cold front pushed east into Wisconsin during the late afternoon and evening hours of April 10th. Severe thunderstorms developed along the cold front and produced very large hail and three tornadoes over portions of western and central Wisconsin. The hail ranged from quarter to tennis ball size and caused extensive damage to siding and cars in the southern portions of the city of La Crosse (La Crosse County). Although difficult to estimate, damage estimates from insurance companies and contractors in the area were between 20 and 30 million dollars from the one hail storm. National Weather Service storm survey teams confirmed two EF1 tornadoes and an EF2 tornado in Juneau and Adams counties. The tornadoes uprooted trees, knocked power lines down, flipped automobiles, and damaged or destroyed homes and businesses. In Adams County, 7 homes and 3 businesses were destroyed and damage assessments exceeded three and a half million dollars.
Event Narrative Two day rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches across central Wisconsin produced a period of flooding along the Black River in Black River Falls. The river exceeded the flood stage from the 10th into the 12th. The river crested over four feet above the flood stage at 51.6 feet.
