Rough Weather Triggers Storm Warnings In Minnesota, Wisconsin
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rough weather moved across Minnesota and Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon and evening, damaging homes, barns, power lines and trees.
In Wisconsin, a Lincoln County sheriff's dispatcher says several homes were seriously damaged by a reported tornado touchdown shortly after 6 p.m. in the northern town of Merrill, about 15 miles north of Wausau. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
The weather service says two or three homes were damaged and a barn was reported destroyed shortly before 7 p.m. by a possible tornado near Hamburg in Marathon County.
Three barns were blown down and a mobile home was knocked off its foundation by high winds in Houston County of far southeastern Minnesota.
Kurt Kuhlers, the county's emergency management director, says there's no confirmation of a tornado in the county.
