Ashland County had 2 tornadoes 1 was rated EF 2 and the other rated EF0

Iron County had one tornado it was rated EF 1…..

Overall Barron County had the most EF1 tornadoes.

The Counties that had the strongest tornadoes EF2 are as follows… Ashland, and Pierce…

Won’t go into warnings as there was so many issued just for Barron County alone… Right off the top of my head there was at least 4 tornado warnings that I know of issued for Barron County….
Notice the Dunn County tornado was dropped from the list... As it was not confirmed and not listed in WI 2010 plots. If it was to be listed once again it would rate EF0 once again.......
Barron County did come up the winner for seeing the most widespread damage along with very large hail and damage from that..
St.Croix and Dunn Counties came up the winners in the most flooding throughout the area....
Remind you Dirk chased all these events and his chase logs and pictures can confirm how we came up with the winners list....
Info came from the our office, Our storm chaser Dirk Miller, along with our weather observer's,  and the NWS that covers our FA....
