MILWAUKEE (AP) — The remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal are moving out of the Midwest and into Canada, with gusty winds and heavy rain leaving behind flooding in Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri and Iowa.

High winds brought down trees and left thousands without power in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Nebraska. The National Weather Service reports a brief tornado touched down late Tuesday in rural Iroquois County, south of Chicago. No injuries have been reported. The weather service has issued a gale warning through Wednesday evening on Lake Michigan.

And scattered severe thunderstorms are possible Wednesday from the Midwest into parts of the Northeast.
