DEERBROOK, WI (WTAQ) - North central Wisconsin had one tornado, and maybe more Tuesday afternoon.

The National Weather Service said a twister kept going on and off the ground near Deerbrook in Langlade County around 4 p.m. Authorities said it landed in fields and woods, with no damage except for tree debris.

The same storm might have caused tornado damage an hour earlier to the west in Lincoln County. Trees and power lines went down near Irma and Gleason.

The Weather Service said tornado touchdowns might have been possible in both areas.

Later, funnel clouds were spotted during the 6 p.m. hour at Redgranite in Waushara County, and Lake Poygan in Winnebago County.

A mobile home tipped over near Oconto, where a couple homes had minor roof damage. Marinette had almost two inches of rain in two hours Tuesday evening.

The Wisconsin Public Service utility reports only about 40 customers without power in Menominee County Wednesday morning. About 1,000 customers lost their electricity during the Lincoln County storms.

Those storms are now gone, and a dry day is expected with gradual clearing. It’ll also be cooler, with highs in the 70’s statewide.
