Meteorologists surveying possible tornadoes


LA CROSSE (AP) -- The National Weather Service plans to send out officials to determine if tornados touched down in Wisconsin.

Preliminary reports show tornadoes may have struck Winnebago, Eau Claire, Adams, Outagamie, Marathon, Waushara and Lincoln counties.

Meteorologist Tony Zaleski says he's not heard of anyone getting hurt.

In central Wisconsin, the Wausau Daily Herald reports houses were destroyed, roofs were torn from buildings, trees were downed and residents lost power in Merrill in Marathon County.

Kaukauna Police Chief John Manion tells WHBY radio in Appleton that he thinks a tornado struck there and he estimated damage in the millions of dollars.

Manion says at least 50 or 60 homes and a church were damaged.
