Wisconsin (WQOW) -- A system of severe weather sparked several funnel cloud sightings in southern Wisconsin Wednesday night.

According to the National Weather Service, a tornado was reported around 5 p.m. by trained spotter in Hubertus west of Highway 164 and north of Highway Q.

A funnel cloud is caught on camera by Joshua Snuggs in Munches, near the border of Waukesha and Washington counties. The video was sent in to our Milwaukee affiliate WISN 12 NEWS. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Washington County after a radar-indicated tornado was spotted. That warning has since been canceled. The Washington Count Sheriff's Office said there was minor damage.

In Grant County, the damage was a little more expansive. Emergency management officials said a barn and a machine shed were destroyed. There were also reports of homes with windows blown out. The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF-0 tornado touched down.
