WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - Storms left some damage throughout central Wisconsin last night. Downed power lines and trees were only part of the problem. Blown debris was on the highways, and even some traffic signs were blown over, such as a large 29-51 interchange sign near Wausau.
There are still some lingering power outages.
At the height of the storms there were outages in Wausau, Mosinee, Rothschild, and Schofield. About 6,000 homes were impacted. As of 3am, 900 Wisconsin Public Service customers were still without power. That’s down to less than 300 as of 5am. Everyone should be restored by 8am
Marathon County Sheriff's Lieutenant Frank Hanousek says most of the heavy damage was centered in the Kronenwetter area.
Wind gusts topped 60-miles per hour at times.
