HUSTISFORD, Wisconsin — The National Weather Service has determined straight-line winds, not a tornado, caused storm damage in southern Wisconsin.
Meteorologists on Monday looked at damage near Hustisford, in Dodge County, and Allenton and Boltonville, in Washington County.

The weather service says most of the damage happened in a uniform direction with little or no evidence of twisting or swirling.
In Hustisford, winds estimated at 100 mph caused an equipment building to collapse, snapped a wooden power pole in half and blew down about a dozen trees.
High winds took off part of a roof in Allenton. A silo collapsed on a barn about two miles west of Boltonville, killing 12 cattle.
The unusually powerful late-season storms brought damaging winds and tornadoes to 12 states Sunday.
