ORIGINAL STORY 4/10 at 5:03 p.m
Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative says they have made significant progress restoring electric service following Wednesday’s severe weather. However, several new power outages were reported overnight.
More than 40 individual power outages still remain across six counties of the cooperative’s 12-county service area in central Wisconsin. Approximately 300 members in each of Adams and Waushara Counties are still out of power. Outages also remain in the surrounding counties of Columbia, Marquette, Portage and Waupaca.
Adams-Columbia Electric Cooperative expects most customers will have power restored by Thursday. Some individual power outages will take longer to repair due to broken poles and extensive tree damage.
With more inclement and possibly extreme weather in the forecast, it is possible that other power outages may occur today. Adams-Columbia reminds its cooperative members to stay away from downed electric lines and call 1-888-928-2232 to report any power outages or other emergencies involving their power lines.
