Hail causes crop damage in Door County

Strong Storm Drops Hail
Strong Storm Drops Hail

STURGEON BAY, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Door County's fruit crops took a big hit from Wisconsin's latest hailstorm on Monday night. Bob Fellner of rural Sturgeon Bay tells WLUK TV that his 60-acre apple crop was wiped out. Not far away, Debbie Musil said about half her cherry orchard was lost. At the Peninsula Ag Research Station, officials said every type of crop on its 20-acre site was damaged -- including corn, wheat, and perennial fruits.

Witnesses said hail stayed on the ground for hours into yesterday -- when Cherry Hills Golf Course closed its front nine holes because they were unplayable. The storm was accompanied by a large drop in temperatures.

Sturgeon Bay was among several cities which had record-cold high temperatures yesterday, with 63. Madison, Marshfield, Oshkosh, Appleton, and Rhinelander also had record-low afternoon highs, none of which hit 70. Tomahawk had the state's coldest reading at five am today -- 37-degrees, just five above freezing.

It's supposed to be a bit warmer today, with highs in the low-to-mid-70's statewide under partly cloudy skies. The gradual warming continues for the rest of the week, but forecasters say we won't see 80 again until Saturday.
