Wisconsin Public Service crews are working through the aftermath of Friday's severe thunderstorms while trying to restore electric service to customers in Door and Kewaunee counties. WPS says about 44,000 customers in the company's service area are without power as of late Saturday morning, including over 1100 in Door County and several in Kewaunee County. WPS Senior Communications Specialist Matt Cullen says power lines were downed by a
combination of high winds and heavy rains.
Cullen says it's not known approximately when electric service will be restored. He also urges people to keep away from downed power lines until repairs are made.
