Tens Of Thousands Without Power In Wis. Storms

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A wintry mix of rain, ice and snow in Wisconsin is making travel difficult and has put tens of thousands without power.

We Energies and Wisconsin Public Service are working to restore power to about 28,000 customers.

The National Weather Service says south central and southeast Wisconsin have gotten 1 1/2 to 3 inches of rain in the last 24 hours. Forecasters say the precipitation won’t let up Thursday with more storms sweeping the state.

Wisconsin Emergency Management spokeswoman Lori Getter says crews are cleaning up the downed power lines and trees caused by ice in Sheboygan, Marquette and other counties.
