Torrential downpours, powerful winds, hail strike southeast Wisconsin
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Severe weather raced through southeast Wisconsin late Sunday morning, November 17th. Those who were in the path of the storms were witness to torrential downpours, localized flooding, pea-sized to quarter-sized hail and the threat for tornadoes.
One of the hardest hit areas in Wisconsin was the Washington County area.
Washington County Sheriff’s officials say the areas most affected were in the Town of Addison (Allenton area) and the Town of Farmington.
A residence on Elm St. in Allenton lost a portion of its roof.
Two farms in the Town of Farmington suffered severe damage — one located on State Road 28 and the other on Wescott Road.
The farm on State Road 28 lost a portion of its roof and suffered damage to nearly all of its outbuildings. One cow was fatally injured.
The farm on Wescott Road had a silo collapse on a barn that held cattle. Recovery efforts remain underway — however, it is belief that 10-15 cows were killed at the time of the collapse.
At this time there has not been a determination on whether the damage was caused by straight line winds or a tornado.
