High winds and heavy rains have stuck parts of western Wisconsin, knocking down trees and interrupting power.
The Trempealeau County Sheriff's Department says the winds struck about 4 p.m. Wednesday. A pole shed was reported down between Blair and Whitehall along U.S. Highway 53.
Most municipalities in the county sounded their storm sirens. The sheriff's office says there were no reports of anyone hurt.
The National Weather Service says 1.9 inches of rain fell in an hour a mile west of Eau Claire, causing minor street flooding and ponding in fields.
Trees also were reported down in Fairchild and five miles south of Eau Claire.
Southwestern Wisconsin also saw severe weather Wednesday night. Authorities say no one was injured when a possible tornado touched down at the Jelly Stone Campground in the town of Bagley Wednesday night.
Fire Chief Fred White tells WKBT-TV several trailers are on their sides and downed power lines have left about half the town without power.
Crawford County emergency managers suspect the damage was caused by a tornado, but the National Weather Service has not confirmed that.
Richland County Emergency Management officials say several businesses in Richland Center were damaged by the storm.
