UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) For the second day in a row heavy thunderstorms caused flooding and widespread damage in southern Wisconsin.
Madison's downtown and east side had two-and-a-half inches of rain in 30 minutes late yesterday afternoon. A number of places in the Madison area had street flooding.
We Energies said 114,000 electric customers in southeast Wisconsin lost their power -- the most for a single incident since 2005. Almost 17,000 of them were still out as of three this morning, mostly between Waukesha and West Allis.
In southwest Wisconsin a funnel cloud was spotted near Livingston in Grant County late yesterday afternoon. It didn't touch down. Nearby Lancaster had winds up to 78-miles-an-hour. The National Weather Service also said a pole-shed was blown up to 300 yards into a farm field at Rewey in Iowa County. Numerous trees, power lines -- and in some cases, utility poles -- were blown down across the southern part of the Badger State.
Meanwhile, the Weather Service has now confirmed two tornadoes from Sunday night -- an E-F-2 twister north of Dodgeville, and an E-F-1 tornado in rural Dane County. Trees and buildings were damaged in both cases, and no injuries were reported.
More rain and possible thunderstorms are in today's forecast throughout Wisconsin.
