Many in Marinette County preparing for round two of possible severe weather. Last Friday a tornado tore through Wausaukee killing one man and damaging dozens of homes. People there continue to clean-up days later as they prepare for another possible round of storms.
"I'm not looking forward to it. I haven't even gotten this cleaned up," said Jackie Buck, who's business was torn apart in the tornado.
But at the Marinette County dispatch center they have an eye to the sky.
"When there's bad weather coming the National Weather Service does rely on us as sheriffs and deputies to give them confirmed reports of what they're being told," said Sheriff Jerry Sauve.
He tells us there's also three tornado sirens around the county, but last week there wasn't enough time to send a signal. That's why Sauve Says it's important to keep an eye out.
"People really need to pay attention to those watches and warnings when we get those cause it can develop so quickly in the summertime," said Sauve.
Meanwhile, Buck wants this clean-up to be her last.
"For the next storm I hope God shifts it a whole other direction," said Buck.
