Gov. Walker to tour storm damage in Merrill

MERRILL, Wis. (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to tour Merrill, where he describes the storm damage as "devastating."

Walker and state officials from the National Guard and the Wisconsin Emergency Management Administration were scheduled to arrive in the small central Wisconsin town early Monday evening.

Local officials say the spring storms destroyed houses, tore roofs from buildings, downed trees and left thousands of people without power.

Walker says damage assessment and recovery efforts have begun. Three people were hurt in the storm, and Walker says he's thankful there weren't more.
