DEERBROOK, Wis. - The National Weather Service says a tornado touched down several times near Deerbrook as strong storms moved through central Wisconsin.
The weather service says law enforcement observed the tornado lift off and touch down several times as it moved east around 4 p.m. Tuesday.
But a Langlade County sheriff's dispatcher says it's a rural area of fields and woods, and there was no damage apart from some tree debris, and no injuries.
The weather service later issued tornado warnings when spotters reported a confirmed tornado in Waushara County near Plainfield about 5:45 p.m., but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries there, either.
The storms also downed trees and power lines in Lincoln County, where Wisconsin Public Service reports about 1,000 customers lost power.
