Weekend storms in Wisconsin's Northwoods caused more customers to lose power than at any time in the last 20 years.

Green Bay-based Wisconsin Public Service says its crews restored power to more than 120-thousand customers. Lightning hit several power facilities and W-P-S reports more than 100 power poles were broken, with falling trees knocking down more power lines. More than one-thousand workers were involved in restoring service.
