3/9/2017 - Cleanup Continues After Wind Storm - Click here to print this information

Antigo residents are still cleaning up after a powerful wind storm on Tuesday that featured straight line winds topping 50 miles an hour. The wind toppled trees and ripped off their limbs, snapping power lines. Wisconsin Public Service says 866 Antigo customers lost power.
A metal roof blew off a home on Lincoln Street and sparked wires. City emergency and utility crews also dealt with a power line in the road near Taco Bell and in several other locations. The winds ripped away awnings at several locations and debris damaged a window at a downtown business. The traffic lights at Neva Road and Century Avenue were also out for a time. One unusual result of the high wind was that it sent several trampolines for road trips including one at Dorr Street and Fifth Avenue and along Highway B. The National Weather Service reports that the wind speed at the Langlade County Airport Tuesday afternoon was a sustained 46 miles per hour, with gusts up to 56 miles miles an hour.
