LANCASTER, Wisconsin — A thunderstorm carrying high winds knocked down trees in southern Wisconsin, and also knocked out power to some areas.

Numerous trees were downed in Lancaster. There were also reports of damage to sheds and outbuildings in other parts of Grant County. Grant County Emergency Management director Steve Braun tells WMTV that several homes were also damaged and the power was out in some areas.

Trees and power lines were also down in Jefferson County.

As of 2 p.m. Monday, about 32,000 Wisconsin residents were without power — 22,000 in the Milwaukee area and 10,000 in southwestern Wisconsin.

In Vilas County, a woman was hurt when a tree branch struck her head. She was taken to a hospital.

Much of southeastern Wisconsin was under a severe thunderstorm watch through Monday afternoon.
