DODGE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - It was not a tornado that caused heavy storm damage in Dodge and Washington counties on Sunday. 

The National Weather Service inspected the area Monday, and found evidence of straight line winds with bursts of over 100 miles an hour. Officials said most of the wind was in the same direction, with little evidence of the swirling that was seen in tornadoes that went through the Midwest to the south of Wisconsin. 

In Hustisford, winds up to 100 miles an hour caused an equipment building to be destroyed. Part of a roof was blown off in Allenton, and a silo collapsed on a barn near Boltonville where 12 cattle were killed. 

About 80 trees were damaged in all -- including up to 50 trees on a mile-long path.

Weather Service inspectors continue to look at tree damage in Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth counties to determine if tornadoes landed there. 

The heaviest storms were in central and southern Illinois, where six people were killed. Michigan also had a pair of storm-related deaths.
