Tornadoes reported in southwestern Wisconsin

MINERAL POINT, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  At least a couple of tornadoes apparently touched down in southern Wisconsin late last night. If confirmed, they would be the first in Wisconsin this year.

Authorities in Lafayette County said a possible twister caused barn damage, tossed cars, and twisted trees southwest of Mineral Point. That was about 11:30 pm, when large trees and numerous power lines were reported to be down in the city of Mineral Point. Just after midnight, the Weather Service reported a tornado in Green County with trees twisted and down near Blanchardville and part of a roof torn off west of New Glarus.

Tornado damage was also reported in Dane County, where a roof was torn off a house south of Shorewood Hills in the Madison area -- and blown-out windows were among the damage at Verona. To the east, high winds took down trees and power lines near West Bend around two this morning. In northwest Wisconsin, a flash flood hit Maynard in Chippewa County yesterday afternoon, with up to three-feet of water over a town road. Winds gusted to 51-miles-an-hour near Cumberland in Barron County.

The statewide forecast has a chance for more thunderstorms today, with highs in the 80's in most places.
