Rusk County (WQOW) - Families and businesses in northwestern Wisconsin are still recovering after an EF-3 tornado hit Rusk and Barron counties in mid-May, killing one person and injuring 25 others.
Rusk County emergency officials said clean-up and rebuilding efforts have been slowed by weather, insurance issues and limited access to contractors.
In a press release, officials said the Donation Center in Barron County will be closing on July 29. They said the application deadline for SBA financial assistance is August 11.
