NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- At least one person is injured after storms knocked down trees and power lines in central Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service in La Crosse says the storms destroyed several barns and tore the roofs off houses late Tuesday afternoon.

A tornado was reported in Clark County about 5:30 p.m., and another was reported in the Neillsville area.

Clark County Emergency Management Director Michelle Hartness says there is one confirmed injury. That person's condition is unknown.

The weather service says a house in Chili, about 12 miles west of Marshfield, was lifted off its foundation during the storm.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ( reports the La Crosse weather service office will send a survey team Wednesday to determine whether tornadoes actually touched down.
