Undependable electricity gets the blame for no school on Washington Island today. School officials decided they didn’t want to risk bringing students to a building with no power.
Washington Island wasn’t the only place with power issues. Kerry Spees with Wisconsin Public Service says at one point this morning they had a few thousand customers without power, but everyone should be back on line by early evening.
Hoyt Purinton says the weather also shut down the Washington Island Ferry for the morning.
Purinton says you can check the Ferry’s Facebook page to see the schedule for the rest of the day.
Dispatchers reported several trees down in roadways this morning, as well as a few minor accidents.
