Parts of Wisconsin continue to recover from destructive weekend storms that included up to nine tornadoes Friday night into Saturday morning.

No one was killed, but two injuries were reported in Trempealeau County.

We Energies reported that nearly 21,000 remain without power Monday morning due to one of the most powerful storms to hit the Fox Valley in two decades. Power has been restored to more than 80,000 customers since Friday night.

We Energies said the storms caused so much damage that it will have to rebuild part of its network, and customers in that area could be without power for days.

About 30,500 Wisconsin Public Service customers remain without service with 8,850 in Green Bay. Nearly 4,300 Alliant Energy customers remain without power on Monday.
