Storm Update

Clean up continues this morning following severe storms that hit the northern and central portions of Wisconsin yesterday afternoon and evening. Straight line winds with gusts up to 70 mph, hail, heavy rain and a tornado were reported. Several utilities are still reporting some scattered power outages this morning due to downed power lines but most power should be fully restored later today.  In Eau Claire, the wastewater treatment plant continues to run on generator power but the lift stations are operational. Xcel Energy is reporting about 1500 customers are still without power but power should be fully restored this afternoon. In Taylor County, trees and power lines were down on Highway H just outside of Thorp and in Trempealeau County some trees went down in Arcadia but no reports of damage.
