NEW LONDON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker got a first-hand look of the damage from a storm that rolled through parts of Northeast Wisconsin.

The governor arrived just before 8 a.m. in New London Thursday and surveyed the downed trees, power lines, damaged structures, homes and vehicles.

Walker held a press conference in front of Trinity Lutheran Church, which was destroyed by an EF-2 tornado. He also visited storm damage in Hortonville.

Governor Walker says said the state is looking at several options to help communities clean up debris. One option could include calling in the Wisconsin National Guard for help.

He also said the state is actively making sure insurance adjusters are assisting storm victims at a rapid pace.

Walker is also expected to visit Marinette County Thursday, where a town chairman was killed while cleaning up storm debris.
