WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Washington County Sheriff's Office is reporting minor damage following a possible tornado just west of Hubertus on Wednesday evening.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the dispatch center took reports of minor damage. There were three trees and two power lines that were down in the 1000 block of St. Augustine Road near the Village of Richfield.

"I lost probably about 10 trees, I probably lost more that I haven't seen yet, and shingles off the entry house," said John Bosanec whose property was damaged.

The Sheriff's Office did not take any reports of injuries.

Steven Becker was able to catch the tornado on video. He was driving his truck when he looked up and saw a funnel cloud forming right above him.

"There wasn't any wind or rain or anything. It just came down at it was moving really really fast so it was kind of impressive," said Steven Becker. 

On Thursday, Richfield's Public Works Yard will be open from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. for brush drop-off due to the storm. The Public Works Yard will also be open during those same hours next week.
