UNDATED (WSAU) The National Weather Service has confirmed two tornadoes from Tuesday’s storms in southern Wisconsin. Both were “F”-one twisters with sustained winds of around 100-miles-an-hour. The first tornado traveled from near Alto in Fond du Lac County to near Markesan in Green Lake County. Officials said it leveled half of a barn, flattened a pole-shed, and took down numerous trees and power lines. The second tornado landed near Green Lake 11 minutes after the first one. It tore part of the roof off a barn, and uprooted trees.
It’s the third day this year that Wisconsin has had multiple tornadoes. Twelve tornadoes landed on April 10th. And six more touched down on May 22nd from the same weather system that produced the devastating twister in Joplin Missouri.
All told, the Badger State has had close to two dozen tornadoes – about the same number it normally gets for an entire year.
