GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAU-Wheeler News) - Powerful storms in Central and Northeastern Wisconsin have killed one person and injured three others.

On Wednesday the National Weather Service confirmed an EF-2 tornado near New London and an EF-1 tornado near Kaukauna.

Wisconsin Emergency Management officials say a worker in Marinette County was killed, another injured, when they were hit by a vehicle while clearing storm debris off a road. Authorities say two people were injured by storm debris at campgrounds near Fremont and Wrightstown.

The National Weather Service says the thunderstorms packed winds over 80 miles-per-hour, causing the most damage around Fox Valley. We Energies says over 50,000customers are without power and it could take three days to restore service in those areas hit the hardest.
