Thursday's storms are associated with the same weather system that brought hail, isolated tornadoes and other dangerous conditions that prompted Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers (D) to declare a state of emergency on Thursday.
Here is the view from the drone last night near Cumberland, WI as the severe weather event kicked off. Intense lightning, winds and tornado warnings were spawned by these storms. Overall the system underperformed in Wisconsin thankfully. #wiwx @MyRadarWX pic.twitter.com/u30TcS3yqF— Aaron Jayjack (@aaronjayjack) July 29, 2021
As the system traveled, at least two tornadoes popped up in Ohio's Jefferson County and Harrison County, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) storm report.
