Nearly 21,000 electric customers still without power statewide

by

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - About 21,000 electric customers were still without power in Wisconsin late Friday morning, after the massive snow storm from the past two days.

Wisconsin Public Service only had about 625 customers still out – about half of those being in Door County.

We Energies had 11,600 customers out as of 10:30 a.m., mainly in the Milwaukee region. Wisconsin Power and Light still had 8,900 customers in the dark in the south central part of the state.  

Much of the southern two-thirds of Wisconsin had 10 inches or more. The biggest total is now reported near Beaver Dam, with 20.1 inches.

The snow stopped falling Thursday night, but the storm continues to push strong winds into the Badger State. In fact they were stronger late Friday morning than they were overnight.

Milwaukee had wind gusts of 45 miles an hour at 10 a.m. The strongest winds were generally in the eastern half of the state, in the 20 to 35 mile an hour range.

Clearing skies and colder temperatures are due in for the weekend.
