Tornado confirmed in Sullivan, damage in Belleville caused by straight-line winds
NWS also surveying damage in Fort Atkinson
The National Weather Service is surveying storm damage in southern Wisconsin on Wednesday.
Crews were at three locations in the region — Sullivan, Fort Atkinson and Belleville — according to a Facebook post by the NWS.
An EF-1 tornado touched down 3 miles southwest of Sullivan near Rome Road and County Road P, according to the NWS. The tornado ended near Highway 83 between County Road E and County Road D.
The National Weather Service believes straight-line winds caused damage in Belleville.
Meanwhile, several roads in Fort Atkinson were blocked off Wednesday morning because of storm damage.
Most of the damage took place on the city’s south side, in the area of Nadig Drive.
Six homes saw minor damage, while two had moderate damage to roofing, siding and windows.
Around 30 trees were uprooted and 100 saw significant limb damage according to Chief Daryl Rausch, with the Fort Atkinson Fire Department.
Tree limbs fell on 10 cars, Rausch said.
No injuries were reported.
Power has been restored to all homes except for two in the city. Problems at these homes are preventing crews from restoring power, Rausch said.
