The National Weather Service has confirmed ten tornadoes from Wednesday afternoon in eastern and northeast Wisconsin.

They landed in Brown, Outagamie, Winnebago, Green Lake, and Shawano counties between 1:45 and four p-m. Eight tornadoes have been categorized as "E-F Zero" and "E-F One" storms, with peak winds of 60 to 90 miles-an-hour -- and one near Appleton damaged two industrial buildings and some other structures, while a twister at Pulaski destroyed a barn and damaged two garages. Numerous tree damage was also reported. Meanwhile, thunderstorms hit parts of Wisconsin for the fifth day in a row -- this time in the far south, where trees and power lines fell late Thursday night in parts of Green and Lafayette counties in the Browntown and South Wayne areas.
