Thousands Of Power Outages Across Northwoods


As of mid-afternoon, about WPS 6000 customers remained without power, primarily in north central and northeastern Wisconsin.

Since the high winds began yesterday morning, WPS has restored electricity to more than 22,500 customers. Because of the consistent high winds, as WPS restored power to many, others lost power.

There are currently more than 130 people working to restore electricity in nearly 100 separate outage instances. Winds are expected to subside by 7:00PM. If that happens WPS anticipates tha power will be restored for everyone sometime this evening. Customers are reminded to avoid downed power lines.
