Weather Service spots tornados in southern Wis.

WHITEWATER (AP) -- The National Weather Service says it has numerous reports of tornado touchdowns in southern Wisconsin and as a strong storm moves east through the state.

The weather says it has damage reports from near Whitewater and along the Jefferson and Walworth county line. It did not immediately release details of the damage.

The weather service is recommending that people in the Whitewater, Palmyra, North Pairie, Eagle and Troy Center areas take cover in an interior room of a sturdy building.

The weather service also says trained weather spotters reported a tornado about seven miles northeast of Dodgeville. That storm is also moving east.

Tornado warnings were issued for west-central Dane County and central Iowa County, both in south-central Wisconsin.
