UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Wisconsin utility crews are working rapidly to restore power to customers trying to keep their homes and businesses warm during this bitter cold wave.
In Dodge County, We Energies said 1,000 customers lost their electricity this morning near Watertown -- but by eight o'clock, that number was reduced to about 280. The only other outage of note was around Alma Center, where X-cel Energy said a dozen customers were in the cold as of eight. In Monona, around 900 Madison Gas-and-Electric customers had their power back by four this morning. The Monona City Hall was opened last night for those needing a place to stay warm.
In Door County, Wisconsin Public Service had around 220 customers out at four a-m in the Sister Bay area. All those people are back online.
