Menomine County - Severe storms that moved through northeastern Wisconsin left a woman dead. In Menominee County, a driver was killed by a falling tree in Keshena Wednesday night. Emergency management spokeswoman Lisa Wilson says the driver was a Menominee County woman. Wilson says a large part of the county is still without power. Menominee County sheriff's officials say some secondary roads may not be passable because of a large amount of tree damage. Authorities say about a dozen homes in the Bonduel area of Shawano County sustained damage during Wednesday's severe weather. In Wausau, a home was destroyed by fire after a lightning strike. Wisconsin Public Service says about 27-hundred customers remained without service this morning. Power may not be fully restored until this afternoon.
