HIGHLAND, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News) - We're learning more about the tornado that caused heavy damage in Iowa County in southwest Wisconsin.
National Weather Service radar now shows it was on the ground from about 10:20 to 10:45 p.m. Sunday from Highland to near Governor Dodge State Park.
The Iowa County Emergency Management agency said the storm tore roofs from homes. Silos and hundreds of trees were blown down.
There has been no word of any injuries. A damage survey crew will inspect the damage later Monday.
Also, the Weather Service confirms a 4.3 mile path of wind damage starting around 11:25 p.m. close to Oregon in Dane County. One farm had roof damage to both a house and a barn, and a grain elevator was blown down.
Elsewhere, officials reported a mudslide on Highway 60 in Crawford County. Pardeeville in Columbia County had up to one-and-three-quarter inches of rain in just 20 minutes. Baraboo in Sauk County had up to two-feet of street flooding. Trees and power lines fell near Fennimore in Grant County.
A flash flood watch is in effect until this evening for much of southwest Wisconsin. The Weather Service said the ground was so saturated in that region, it could cause already-high rivers and streams to go over their banks. The overnight storms were leaving Wisconsin around four this morning.
Forecasters said another round of heavy thunderstorms is due in this afternoon and evening.
