MADISON, Wis. -- Emergency management officials say severe storms that swept through southern Wisconsin early Tuesday have damaged more than a dozen structures in Dane County, including homes and an elementary school.

Josh Wescott of Dane County Emergency Management says most of the damage centered on the north side of Verona and the southwest side of Madison. No injuries have been reported.

Lt. David Dresser of the Verona Police Department says at least 15 structures were damaged, including Country View Elementary School, which partially collapsed.

Wescott says the office received reports of collapsed homes and missing roofs.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Steve Davis says imagery indicates a tornado likely cycled from Green County into Dane County.

He said the Weather Service received reports of downed power lines and trees in Green County.
