Emergency management officials in Crawford County, Wisconsin will open a call center Thursday morning for people impacted by Wednesday's storms.

Beginning at 8 a.m., people can call 608-326-0267 if you need supplies or assistance with storm clean-up.  Phone calls will be taken until approximately 4:00 p.m.

Dispatchers in Crawford County say the worst storm reports include trees down.  Alliant Energy crews will be working to restore power Thursday.  Photos submitted by a viewer show damage to an area McDonalds, a tree that crushed a truck, and also a tree uprooted by wind. There are no reports of anyone hurt.

In a statement, Prairie du Chien Police Chief Chad Abram said, "We sincerely thank the citizens of Prairie du Chien for their cooperation in helping their neighbors.  Without good citizenship our job would be much more difficult to complete in a safe and orderly manner."
