The tornado was reported in Green Lake County, where authorities said a roof was partially blown off a home near Markesan.

Places from La Crosse to Jackson had at least some street flooding. Prairie du Chien had 2.1 inches of rain in just 43 minutes, plus pea-sized hail.

Winds hit 70 mph near LaValle in Sauk County, and a truck almost got blown off a road because of it.

In Pewaukee, lighting started a condominium fire that caused at least $30,000 in damage. No one was hurt.

The National Weather Service says most of Wisconsin will be dry today, but there's still a chance of lingering showers in the south and east.

Our next chance of rain is on Thursday.
