Crews are still cleaning up in many parts of Wisconsin Sunday after a summer storm slammed communities throughout the southern half of the state.
As many as 50,000 customers lost power as the storm ripped through with winds up to 70 miles an hour.
Three men were struck by lightning at a Somerset campground, but there were no other reports of serious injuries.
In Eau Claire, police and fire called in extra workers to handle all the calls. The power outage meant many street lights were out.
Xcel Energy spokesman Brian Elwood says thousands of customers in the Eau Claire, Altoona and Chippewa Falls areas could be without power until Monday afternoon.
That comes as the mercury is expected to rise into the high 90s Sunday.
