Prairie du Chien Police Chief Mike King says residents are mostly finding light stuff - photographs, check stubs, and other personal papers.

One of King's sergeants found business records and greeting cards from a Walgreens' pharmacy in Waterloo.

They blew into his back yard.

Authorities are asking residents to save whatever they find and take it to the Crawford County dispatch center.

When possible, the items will be sent back to their owners. It's rare for tornado debris to be found dozens of miles away, but it's happened before.

A couple years ago, folks in the Milwaukee area found papers and photos from residents in Stoughton after a twister hit that community.
