The National Weather Service – La Crosse has confirmed three tornadoes in southwestern Wisconsin from Wednesday’s storms.

The largest of them was an EF-2 that hit 115 miles per hour in Wyeville, while two EF-1 tornadoes hit in La Farge and Mauston.

The Wyeville tornado’s path lasted 20.9 miles and maxed out at 200 yards wide.

“This tornado developed south of Tomah and tracked northeastward to just east of Wyeville, before ending in the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge,” the Weather Service wrote in a summary. “Tree damage occurred along the length of the path with some damage to structures south of Wyeville.”
