Storms topple trees, power lines, cancel classes

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Another round of severe storms in Wisconsin has toppled trees and power lines, destroyed a barn and canceled classes in one community. 

The storms Wednesday hit southern Wisconsin particularly hard with significant damage reported in Rock, Sauk, Columbia, Walworth and Jefferson counties. A barn in Bradford, east of Janesville, was destroyed by high winds that also left thousands without power. 

The Whitewater Unified School District canceled classes at its five schools because of a lack of electricity. 

Meanwhile to the northwest, residents in Barron County are trying to move forward after a tornado leveled most homes in a trailer park near Chetek . One man was killed and two dozen others were hurt when the tornado touched down Tuesday evening.
