With severe thunderstorms likely to return tonight in the area, utility companies are again getting ready for potential outages dues to wind and lightning damage. Wisconsin Public Service Spokesperson Matt Cullen says crews are still restoring power from storms earlier this week. He says crews restored service to 44,000 customers in Northeastern Wisconsin including all of Door and Kewaunee counties as of late Tuesday. If you see a powerline that is down, Cullen warns that you should stay away from it.
Cullen says he understands the frustration that customers who are impacted by the outages are experiencing this week. He notes that WPS monitors weather conditions year-round and has crews at the ready to respond to events that impact power service to customers throughout the area.
