Strong storms sweep through southern Wisconsin

Posted: Updated:

 MADISON (WKOW) -- For the second night in a row, people living in southern Wisconsin were under the threat of severe weather Monday night.

Severe thunderstorms packing high winds and heavy rain downed trees and power lines all across the 27 News viewing area.

Emergency managers in Grant County reported seeing a funnel cloud in Livingston, which is about 20 miles northeast of Lancaster. Wind gusts hit as high as 78 miles per hour in parts of Grant County.

The National Weather Service also received a report of a funnel cloud spotted in Rewey in Iowa County around 4 p.m. Monday. The report indicates the roof and wooden poles from a pole shed were thrown 200 to 300 yards into a field in Rewey, leaving only the concrete walls behind.

Madison was also hit with street flooding.

No major injuries have been reported after this second night of storms.

The National Weather Service has confirmed three tornadoes hit southern Wisconsin Sunday night -- an EF2 in Dodgeville in Iowa County, an EF1 in Fennimore in Grant County and an EF1 near Oregon in Dane County.
