BROWNSVILLE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The National Weather Service has confirmed tornado damage in Brownsville, Dodge County. The preliminary rating is EF-1. Earlier in the day the NWS confirmed an EF-1 tornado with a wind speed of 100 mph in the Brandon/Alto area. 

A full path of the tornadoes has not yet been established so it is unknown if the same tornado was responsible for damage in both spots.

A new report came out Thursday afternoon of a possible tornado in Wilson, Sheboygan County based on video evidence. That tornado has not yet been confirmed by the National Weather Service.
