Crews make progress restoring power in WisconsinSubmitted: 07/01/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Officials with We Energies say they're making progress in restoring power to customers in southeastern Wisconsin, but outages are expected to persist into Wednesday

At least 115,000 customers of Milwaukee-based We Energies were without power at the peak of the outages. The number was down to about 15,000 by Tuesday night.

We Energies spokesman Rick White says Monday's severe thunderstorms damaged 29 power poles. He calls it the utility's worst outage in a decade.


Across the rest of southern Wisconsin, Madison-based Alliant Energy says about 600 customers remained without power Tuesday night, down from a high of 10,000.

Police say a 63-year-old Janesville man is in critical condition at Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center after apparently being struck by lightning after he got out of his vehicle Monday.
