SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - Lots of people turned out Tuesday up and down the lakeshore to view waves caused by Superstorm Sandy. Sheboygan was no exception, as groups of onlookers gathered throughout the day at the south pier to watch the wave action.
For most of Wisconsin, the effects of Superstorm Sandy have blown away. The East Coast storm brought strong winds yesterday to all of Wisconsin. But those winds have died down. Door County is the only place remaining under a wind advisory this morning. Sturgeon Bay still had winds up to 35-miles-an-hour at five a-m. Tuesday's gusts were as high as 53 at Sheboygan. Officials warned of traffic problems and utility breakdowns in Door County. But the Wisconsin Public Service utility reported no outages there as of five o’clock. With little work to do here, utility workers have joined Red Cross volunteers and others in helping millions in the Eastern U-S who are still without power. X-cel Energy sent eight linemen from its Eau Claire office to West Virginia. Meanwhile, the calmer winds have also brought colder temperatures to northwest Wisconsin. It was only 14 degrees at Hayward at five o’clock. And Land O’Lakes in Vilas County reported light snow.
