A 46-year-old western Wisconsin man died yesterday afternoon when a tornado swept through a trailer home park north of Eau Claire.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says the tornado ripped through the Prairie Lake Estate Mobile Home Park around 5:30 p.m.

Seventeen people were taken to area hospitals and another 5-10 have minor injuries.

The park has about 50 or 60 mobile homes and many were destroyed along with a nearby turkey farm.
