Severe Weather Moves Through Wisconsin

Severe storms with strong winds and heavy rain swept across Wisconsin early this morning leaving trees in the middle of roads and many without power. In the Village of Kekoskee a large tree took out the power lines and was blocking County Trunk Y-N. Power lines were also reported down on Highway 49 in Lomira. We’ve heard reports of trees down on County Highway A near Lake Emily with similar reports in the eastern half of Dodge County. Wind gusts of 63-miles per hour were seen in Green Lake County where about 300 people were without power as of 7am. Dodge County Emergency Management also heard that several homes in the Hustisford area had smoke in their basements as the result of a possible lighting strike. Alliant Energy says about 50-customers in the county were without power while We-Energies were reporting scattered outages throughout its service area. We are still under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 11 a-m today. Highs in the 80’s are expected later today before things cool down with highs only in the 70’s the next two days.
