Driving rains and high winds whipped parts of northern Wisconsin Wednesday night, downing trees in some areas and leaving about 18,000 customers without power.

Wisconsin Public Service's website reported 6,457 customers without power in Crivitz as of 9:30 p.m. Marinette County sheriff's dispatchers reported multiple instances of trees and power lines down around Crivitz and Stephenson.

Rainfall totals reached 1 to 2 inches in parts of Marinette County in the storm. Northern Door County got 0.75 to 1.5 inches, said National Weather Service Meteorologist Mike Cellitti.

Sheriff dispatchers reported handfuls of trees down around Egg Harbor, and in Oconto County.

About 18,000 power outages were reported in Wabeno, Crivitz, Marinette, Menominee, Rhinelander, Sturgeon Bay and Wausaukee."
