Wheaton, WI – Tornado Response

About our Response

On Tuesday, September 24th, a line of severe storms rolled through western Wisconsin – resulting in an EF-3 tornado touching down in Wheaton, WI. The storm has caused extensive damage to homes and property in the area.

Immediate help with chainsaw teams, roof tarping, and debris removal is needed. 

NECHAMA is one of the few organizations in a position to assist.  We have deployed staff on the ground to assist with organizing volunteers and those affected.
