Last evening, a line of severe thunderstorms swept through Alliant Energy’s Wisconsin service area and left nearly 25,000 of our electric customers without power. The weather event included high winds and damage to numerous electric lines, poles, circuits and substations. Our crews and contractors responded and have safely restored thousands of customers to service.
As of 7 a.m., about 4,800 customers remain without power. Restoration efforts are continuing and more resources have been dedicated to the hardest hit areas. We would expect most of our customers to be back in service this afternoon, with all remaining customers out restored by early evening.
We appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding as we work to safely restore power. The latest information on outages can be found at www.alliantenergy.com/outage.
