Area cleans up after storm

You will find plenty of damage from the storms that came through the area Monday night and Tuesday morning. In Algoma, emergency personnel and the public works department had to ask residents to stay off of flooded streets and stay aware of down trees and power lines after storms came through just after 5 p.m. One tree pictured by the Algoma Fire Department pried up a section of the road’s curb and damaged the sidewalk. While Wisconsin Public Service has not officially given any updates on its power outages, Sturgeon Bay Utilities estimates that approximately 100 of its customers lost their electricity when high winds came through the area early Tuesday morning. Al eight lineman were called in at approximately 1:30 a.m. where they encountered mostly broken tree limbs falling on powerlines. Sturgeon Bay Utilities General Manager Jim Stawicki estimates everything should be back to normal for everyone by Wednesday.

Between 5 p.m. Monday and 7 a.m. Tuesday, the Door County Dispatch Center received 28 calls concerning fallen trees and two wires down. As of 8:45 a.m., County Highway HH was closed due to a downed tree.
