APPLETON - Outagamie County officials have asked for help from the National Guard in cleaning up after this week's storms.
County Executive Tom Nelson says he made the request while Gov. Scott Walker toured the damage in Hortonville and New London Thursday morning.
"Clearly, this storm ranks as one of the more punishing weather events that has hit Outagamie County," Nelson said in a news release.
At least two tornadoes touched down in the county early Wednesday morning, leaving trails of damage in New London, Hortonville, Appleton and areas southeast of Kaukauna. High winds also caused significant damage in other parts of the county.
Specifically, Nelson asked the Guard to provide personnel and equipment to help with debris removal.
