STRUM, Wis. (WKBT)- People living in northern Trempealeau Co. near Strum were cleaning-up Monday night after a possible tornado touched down.

“We came down, the volunteer fire department was already here, awesome group of people already doing work, they been good for years and years and had a lot of suggestions. We didn’t know a thing about what to do with this kind of mess so they were very helpful in giving us directions on things we can do.  We’ve got insurance, no one is hurt, it’s obviously going to be a lot of work, but I think things will be OK somewhere down the road,” said Conner.
