The National Weather Service will send out survey teams today (Thursday) to try and confirm reports of up to four tornadoes in east central Wisconsin.
The first twister went down at 2:45 Wednesday afternoon near Markesan (mark'eh zan) in Green Lake County, with tree damage reported. The other tornadoes were reported during the three o'clock hour at Shiocton (shy ock'ton) in Outagamie County, and at Navarino and Frazer Corners in Shawano County -- and a funnel cloud was also reported earlier in the afternoon near Keshena. It was the fourth straight day of heavy storms in parts of Wisconsin, with Wednesday's damage in eastern and southern areas that included fallen trees and power lines, roof damage at Appleton, two-point-six inches of rain in Waupaca County, 75 mile-an-hour winds at Reedsburg, and one inch hail at Edgerton. About 14-thousand electric customers were without power this (Thursday) morning in the places where Wednesday's storms hit.
