GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The National Weather Service confirms the storms that pounded northeastern Wisconsin overnight included two tornadoes.

The weather service says an EF-2 tornado with winds estimated at over 110 mph struck New London in Waupaca County just before 12:30 a.m., causing significant damage to Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, then continued southeast toward Hortonville, where hundreds of homes sustained damage from snapped and uprooted trees.

The Weather Service says an EF-1 tornado with winds of 100 to 110 mph struck Brown County 25 minutes later, near Kaukauna. It caused heavy damage to two barns and numerous trees as it continued into Calumet County, blowing down two metal truss towers.

The weather service says both tornadoes were embedded in storms that packed powerful straight-line winds as well.
