One injured as storms rumble across state
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

At least one person was injured Monday night when more thunderstorms and at least one tornado rumbled through southern Wisconsin.

A 16-year-old boy was struck by lightning near Watertown and was taken to a hospital. Other details were not immediately available.

The tornado was reported in Green Lake County, where authorities said a roof was partially blown off a home near Markesan.

Places from La Crosse to Jackson had at least some street flooding. Prairie du Chien had 2.1 inches of rain in just 43 minutes, plus pea-sized hail.

Winds hit 70 mph near LaValle in Sauk County, and a truck almost got blown off a road because of it.

In Pewaukee, lighting started a condominium fire that caused at least $30,000 in damage. No one was hurt.

The National Weather Service says most of Wisconsin will be dry today, but there's still a chance of lingering showers in the south and east.

Our next chance of rain is on Thursday.
