Hundreds of volunteers streamed into Dane County Sunday to help residents clean up from storms that spawned tornadoes in southern Wisconsin.

Emergency management crews continued to survey the damage in Dane County, where officials estimated Thursday's storm caused $21 million in damage.

EMS coordinator Tim Hillebrand says the estimate could likely increase as the crews continue their surveys.

Most of the damage occurred around Stoughton, where a tornado killed a man and plowed through a subdivision. More than 60 homes were destroyed in Dane County.

In all, 28 tornadoes touched down in the state Thursday, setting a one-day record.
