APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson says the damage estimates from last week's tornadoes and storms have jumped to a combined $31 million.

According to Nelson, private residences and businesses have suffered $25 million in damage, while county-owned property damage comes in at $6 million.

Nelson says that number is significant because the threshold for FEMA disaster assistance is $7.9 million in municipal damage.

So far, several towns and villages in the county have yet to report damage totals and Nelson expects that number to climb.

According to FOX 11, Nelson says they're awaiting word from Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker on whether the National Guard will be mobilized to help with cleanup and recovery efforts.

One of the hardest hit areas is Hortonville. Village leaders will hold a community meeting at 5 p.m. at the high school to update the cleanup efforts there.
