MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Officials have declared a state of emergency in Dane County in order to make storm damage recovery assistance available to residents who need it.
   A possible tornado tore roofs from houses and blew down part of an elementary school in the Madison area early Tuesday. No serious injuries were reported.
   Dane County Emergency Management officials received about 350 reports of storm damage after the storm packing dangerously high winds hit shortly after midnight. Some 15 homes in the city of Verona sustained severe damage.
   Dane County Executive Joe Parisi is touring the storm damage in Verona and Madison with the county's emergency management director.
   Communities will collect damage reports and pass them on to the county which will share them with state officials in hopes of securing a federal disaster declaration.
