It could take several hours to restore power in Green Bay area

Some Wisconsin Public Service customers in the Green Bay and Fox Valley may be without power for a couple of days, the utility said.

Wednesday night’s storms knocked out power to nearly 160,000 WPS customers, and northeastern Wisconsin was the hardest hit, WPS said. “Customers in those areas” should be prepared for a multi-day restoration effort,” WPS said.

WPS and We Energies have received more than 1,000 reports of downed trees, snapped power lines and poles.

WPS urged people to stay at least 25 feet away from any downed wires.

Power lines brought down by a tree on Larson Road in Green Bay after severe storms moved through the area Wednesday evening.

Lightning likely caused two house fires in Washington County

Fire departments from throughout Washington County battled two house fires believed to have been caused by lightning strikes Wednesday night as severe storms moved through the area.

Both fires scenes were about 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

The first fire was reported at 8:45 p.m. in the 5400 block of Hideaway Circle in the Town of Wayne, said Sgt. Alexander Herriges of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, in a statement.

A caller reported that there was a fire in the attached garage of the residence and that flames were coming from the roof.

The first Kohlsville Fire Department firefighters on the scene reported fire and heavy smoke coming from the roof, according to dispatch audio from Broadcastify.

Fire departments from Allenton, Slinger, Kewaskum, Campbellsport, West Bend, and St Lawrence battled the fire.

There were no injuries and the fire caused at least $175,000 in damage, Herriges said.

The cause of the fire is “believed to be the result of a lightning strike to the roof of the residence,” Herriges said.

Then, at 10:24 p.m., firefighters and sheriff’s deputies were called to a house fire in the 3400 block of Town Line Road in the Town of Polk.

A 911 caller told dispatchers that she believed there was a fire in the ceiling of the house.

“They believe the house was hit by lightning. There is black smoke and the smoke detectors are alarming,” a dispatcher radioed to responding sheriff’s deputies and firefighters.

“There are flames visible on the roof and it is spreading very quickly,” the first sheriff’s deputy on the scene radioed to dispatchers.

The Jackson Fire Department responded and immediately called for mutual aid. Emergency crews from Hartford, Slinger, Kewaskum, Cedarburg, West Bend, Fillmore, Newburg, Richfield, St. Lawrence and Germantown, as well as a Lifestar Rescue ambulance responded to the scene.

The fire caused at least $150,000 in damage, Herriges said, and no injuries were reported. The American Red Cross is assisting the family that lived at the home.

Explanation of why tornado watch is extended until 1 a.m.

The storms are still not finished making their way through the far southeast portion of Wisconsin, including the Milwaukee metro area.

While storms have diminished in intensity from what was occurring across Wisconsin on Wednesday afternoon, there is still enough energy in the atmosphere to generate additional severe weather in the southeast, said Sarah Marquardt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sullivan.

So, forecasters decided to extend the tornado watch until 1 a.m.

“The chance (for severe storms) is not as high as it was earlier today, but there is still a small chance,” Marquardt said. “The line of thunderstorms is expected to slowly move across (southeast Wisconsin) during the next few hours and bring lightning and heavy rain and a small chance for a severe thunderstorm or a tornado.”

The storms are continuing to feed off warm, humid air. At 10 p.m. at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport it was still a muggy 80 degrees.

The thunderstorms are “still holding on enough that we are still watching them for severe potential,” Marquardt said.

2:45 p.m.: The difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning

A tornado watch defines a cluster of counties where tornadoes and other kinds of severe weather are possible in the next several hours. It does not mean tornadoes are imminent, just that you need to be alert, and to be prepared to go to safe shelter if tornadoes do happen or a warning is issued.

A tornado warning means that a tornado has been spotted, or that National Weather Service Doppler radar has detected a thunderstorm circulation which can spawn a tornado. “When a tornado warning is issued for your town or county, take immediate safety precautions,” according to the Storm Prediction Center.
