MILWAUKEE (AP) — Cleanup from a rare November tornado begins Tuesday in southeastern Wisconsin.

A confirmed tornado touched down in Walworth County, where four homes and four farm buildings were damaged. The National Weather Service says the tornado was an EF-1 and traveled about four miles.

An apparent twister also moved through Union Grove in Racine County, where semis were blown over and debris was spread over parts of Interstate 94. The weather service planned to send a crew to Racine County Tuesday to confirm whether the storm was a tornado.

We Energies says about 3,000 customers lost power due to the storm. By Tuesday morning, utility crews restored service to all but several hundred customers.

Two people were injured in storm-related traffic accidents and were in stable condition at a Racine hospital.
