Storm update 6/16 pm

Crews were out again today clearing trees.  All town roads are fully open with a few exceptions of dead end roads with no permenant residents.  County Hwy W is still closed at 16594 due to a tree in power lines across the roadway.  While there is no estimated restoration time, I talked with a WPS field supervisor and clearing that tree should be a priority.

There are various houses and vehicles that were damaged due to falling trees.  No injuries have been reported.

High winds occured today, resulting in more trees falling.  If you come across a downed tree, please call the Doty road supervisor, Randy Siewert.  If it is on a live power line, stay clear and call 911.

The town hall will not be open as a shelter since there were very few people needing water or power and outside temperatures and humidities are favorable.  However, if you are in need of drinking water. contact the town chair (608-772-6098) during the day and he can arange to get you water.
