National Weather Service investigating three possible tornadoes overnight

SULLIVAN (WKOW) — The National Weather Service is expected to survey three areas today that were hit by possible tornadoes overnight.

Radar indicated some of the damage was likely caused by several tornado touchdowns, especially around Fort Atkinson, Belleville and north of the NWS Milwaukee/Sullivan forecast office.

Crews will be surveying damage that occurred from strong storms that moved from Lafayette County near Belmont east to southern Dane County around Belleville, continuing east to near Fort Atkinson into western Waukesha County.

Multiple roads were closed on the south side of Fort Atkinson Tuesday night due to downed trees and wires.

Division Chief Tom Gerondale with the Fort Atkinson Fire Department says the damage was centered around Endl Boulevard and Highland Avenue, and outward from that area.

Gerondale says public works crews were working on clearing debris so roads could reopen and We Energies was called to address some power outages.

He says about 10 houses sustained minimal damage.

No injuries were reported, according to Gerondale.

In Belleville, emergency responders from across Dane County are responded to a large gas leak Tuesday night at a home near River and 3rd Streets.

The leak was detected as police officers, firefighters, and other emergency personnel were at the home because a large tree in its front year fell over earlier in the night.

The National Weather Service said a potential tornado could have caused the damage.
