MONROE - No injuries were reported after severe weather felled several trees throughout Green County Wednesday evening.

Wind speeds reached up to 36 miles per hour during a tornado watch Wednesday evening, with gusts reaching as high as 46 miles per hour, but no accidents occurred despite several trees falling across roads across the county.

Green County Sheriff's assistant Pam Young said the sheriff's dispatch office received reports of five trees partially or completely blocking roadways, including two in the Town of Jordan, two in the Town of Argyle and one in the Town of Brooklyn.

Another tree was reportedly leaning against a power line on County Y, Town of Monroe, temporarily cutting off power to several homes in Monroe.

Young said the Green County Highway Department responded to the fallen trees and Alliant Energy was called regarding the damaged power line.

Bud Strunz of the Green County Highway Department reported that no flooding was reported after the storm.

According to the National Weather Service, rain is likely throughout much of the weekend, although wind speeds are not expected to exceed gusts of 30 miles per hour.
