While Wisconsin cleaned up tornado damage, North Dakota was facing ongoing flooding over the weekend.

In the village of Hammond, Wisc., 22 homes were damaged when a tornado touched down Saturday afternoon. The twister tore a 100-foot-wide, 2-mile-long path through the area about 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Hammond is about 35 miles east of St. Paul, Minnesota.

Rural Pine County, in Wisconsin, also reported a tornado but no residential damage resulted.

Meanwhile, in North Dakota, townspeople in Wyndmere saw 5.5 inches of rain in less than 4 hours. They were sandbagging to protect their sanitary sewer lift stations and other infrastructure. The National Weather service issued a flash flood warning for parts of southeast North Dakota.
