HUSTISFORD, Wis. -

Emergency officials said strong winds have damaged a few buildings in central Dodge County Sunday morning.

Dodge County Emergency Management Director Joseph Meagher said his department is working with the National Weather Service to determine the type of wind event that occurred in Hustisford at 10:09 a.m.

Images of damage in the area show bent flag poles, utility poles down and fallen trees. One image shows the twisted metal supports of a cattle pen and another shows what appears to be a collapsed garage.

Meagher said numerous trees were down and damage to multiple structures was sustained including cattle sheds, garages and storage sheds. He said there had been no reports of significant damage to habitable structures as of the early afternoon.

There were no injuries reported from the strong winds, according to a report.

A line of severe storms moved through Dodge and other southern Wisconsin counties Sunday. Much of the southern Wisconsin area was under a tornado watch until 4 p.m. but the watch was canceled at about 2 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
