About 3,000 without power early Monday morning in Rhinelander
About 3,000 people lost power early Monday morning with about 1,500 of them not having power for about three hours when a line came down on the north side of Rhinelander.
The Wisconsin Public Service Center in Rhinelander reported that weather caused the power line to snap. Rhinelander and the Northwoods are experiencing bitter cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills that may have played a roll in the line failing at about 2:30 a.m. Monday morning.
All power was restored by 5:30 a.m. Monday.
