Red Cross Callout in Response to the Tornado in Eagle, WI.

Last night, Waukesha Emergency Coordinator Larry Nolden (NZ9I) called and asked me if I could come out to Eagle and provide communications for Red Cross teams making needs assessments for people effected by the tornado.

The damage was pretty severe and the police had the damaged areas blocked off to prevent looting. Security was so strong, that one resident complained she had problems getting to her own house, even though she had a current ID with her address on it. At least she knew her property was safe from any further loss.

Governor Doyle showed up with Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas to further assess the needs of the area.
