Strong Storms Knock Out Power to Thousands in Wisconsin

Wisconsin Public Service

Strong storms moving through northern Wisconsin have left thousands of residents without power.

According to the Wisconsin Public Service power outage map, the areas hit the hardest include Vilas, Oneida, Lincoln and Langlade counties.

Crews were working to restore service to more than 28,000 customers Tuesday morning. About 12,000 customers were without power in Vilas County and more than 8,300 are without service in Oneida County.

In a Facebook Post, the Langlade County Sheriff’s Office said there are power lines and trees down across the county.

They asked people to be safe if you're out on the road today, and not touch unknown wires down in the road.
