Madison Gas and Electric (MGE) reports about
58 separate outages affecting about 950 electric customers as of 4 p.m.

The number of customers without power is down from about 8,000 following
the storm earlier this morning. MGE expects to have power restored to the
remaining customers by the end of the day.

Many of the remaining outages are scattered and small. The damage may
affect only a couple customers per site, which means a longer restoration
process overall.

MGE will have crews working through the night. MGE is receiving mutual
assistance from Wisconsin Public Service Corporation in Green Bay and from
additional contract crews. This increase in our workforce will allow us to
complete power restoration by the end of the day.

MGE crews and contractors restored power to about 6,400 customers Tuesday
following the first round of storms. The Wednesday morning storm caused
more separate outages than the storm that rolled in early Tuesday morning.

Customers who have not yet reported a loss of power should call MGE at
252-7111 to report an outage.

Never approach a downed power line or anything that comes in contact with
it. Always presume a power line is energized and extremely dangerous.
Report downed lines at 252-7111.”
