7-2-14 severe weather-wisconsin

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Crews are working to restore power to thousands of customers left without electricity after storms battered southern Wisconsin.  At least 115,000 customers of Milwaukee-based We Energies were without power at the peak of the outage.  We Energies spokesman Rick White says power has been restored to more than 80,000 customers, but about 36,000 customers were still without electricity Tuesday morning.  White says Monday's storm damaged 29 power poles. He calls it the utility's worst outage in a decade.  Across the rest of southern Wisconsin, Madison-based Alliant Energy says about 1,500 customers remained without power early Tuesday, down from a high of 10,000.
