Wisconsin Gov. Scott McCallum visited tornado-ravaged Ladysmith Tuesday afternoon.

He declared Rusk County a state disaster area late last night, making the county eligible for state assistance. McCallum promised $1.5 million in low-interest rate home loans, $35,000 for immediate emergency assistance and $1 million for small businesses in the county. Several injuries were reported, McCallum says it's 'amazing' no one was killed in the tornado.
