Tornados can be absolutely devastating forces of nature, especially when they materialize over a populated area with little warning, but the destruction they bring often fades with time. That doesn't seem to be the case in northern Wisconsin, where a 40-mile-long scar still remains from a strong tornado which tore through thousands of acres of forest over a decade ago.
On June 7th, 2007, a large EF3 tornado sliced through thick woods in the north of the state, tearing down everything in its path for 40 miles before finally sputtering to a stop. An incredible 14,000 acres of forest was lost to the twister, and as The Weather Channel points out, the area still sports a nasty gash that can be seen from weather satellites.
