The National Weather Service has confirmed an E-F-1 tornado caused damage in Dunn County Monday night. A tornado warning was issued at 7:25 p-m. Meteorologists say the path of the damage starts just north of Interstate 94 near Rusk, continues northeast across Highway 40, then passed through the Whitetail Golf Course south of Colfax. More than 100 trees were downed on the golf course, according to its owner. Estimated wind speeds based on damage at 80-to-90 miles per hour. Radar tracking suggests the tornado traveled about six-point-two miles and was on the ground for 14 minutes. No injuries have been linked to the tornado, but one person was hurt in separate storm events in northwestern Wisconsin the same night.
