Wisconsin Public Service says crews worked nonstop to restore service to more than 120,000 customers following last week’s damaging wind storm.

More than 300 workers helped to fix downed wires, broken utility poles and damage from trees falling into electric equipment.

The WPS website shows that all customers now have power again.

Outages all across Wisconsin, the U.P. and other parts of the Midwest put a strain on resources.

High, sustained winds hit the area.

Rhinelander recorded a wind gust of 76 miles an hour during the storm.
