APPLETON, Wi. (WBAY) – UPDATE 7/22:
Utility crew continues to make progress in restoring power to storm victims of Northeast Wisconsin.
From Monday morning, Wisconsin Public Service has 39,000 customers without power. We have energies with 21,000 customers without electricity.
The tools have restored power to 180,000 customers since Friday.
WPS and We Energies want more than 1000 fields and support staff working on restoration Monday.
"At this point, we do not have a specific estimate of when all customers will receive electricity, but some customers may be out of service for several days," said a statement by spokeswoman Amy Jahns.
At least four tornadoes moved in Northeast Wisconsin Saturday: There is widespread damage from tree clamps and power lines.
From early Sunday evening, more than 1
"For some customers, due to the extent of the damage and the severity of these storms, it will be wrong and some customers who experience and interrupt for several days, "said WPS spokesman Matt Cullen.  But all Both energy companies say their crew does excellent work.
"We have worked nonstop. We have been able to make some progress today, we have had hundreds of crews today," says Conway.
We energies and WPS say that more than 150,000 customers have received their power restored, and that the crews will work around the clock for how long it takes to ensure everyone gets their power back.
"Our crews are members of the communities we also serve. So they can very well be affected by these storms, they may not have had power, they can go on a day or two that they have not had service in their own home, Cullen says. "Then again I think it's talking about their commitment."
"[In] about a line of four, five energy cars and it was a little cool, neighbors came out and they clapped and excited to see them," Conway said. "So we appreciate everyone's patience, we know there have been many days for them."
Over the past few days, the crew has first prioritized lifting down power lines and other security issues. Now it's about restoring main lines in some of the most difficult frames, while ensuring that the crews stay safe too. Much of it ensures that all employees receive eight hours between each change.
"For both We Energies and WPS, security is the highest priority we have. Because if our crews are not safe, they cannot do their job safely," says Cullen.
Although the job in this case requires more effort than normally, they plan to see it as soon as possible.
"Our crews will be out there until the very end, until the last customer is restored from this storm, our crews will be out and work around the clock to said Cullen, 19659004] "They know how important it is, and I think they are proud of the work they do," Conway said.
