Storms flood roads, cause power outages

A strong band of storms through Door County Monday morning caused residents to scramble for flashlights in their homes and alternate routes on their morning commute.

 

After hitting a peak of approximately 135 customers affected by power outages early Monday morning, the number shrank to just 24 customers stretching from Sturgeon Bay to Ellison Bay by late morning according to Wisconsin Public Service.

 

 

 

Flooding was the issue on some local streets including 14th Avenue in Sturgeon Bay, where the police department had to shut down the road due to high waters.  Door County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director David Van Dyke had to cut through parking lots and wade through eight-to-twelve inches of water to get to his office and the Restore. Despite flood waters getting to just within a few feet of their doors, he says everything inside was fine.

 

Across the street at Bonnie Brooke Gardens, a rain gauge read that just over four inches of rain had fallen in just a few short hours. Store manager Gail Savage says nothing got damaged and actually helped.

Both Van Dyke and Savage predicted their storefronts would be open for business by the late morning to early afternoon.
