STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) — Parts of Wisconsin continue to recover from destructive weekend storms.

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

The National Weather Service has confirmed three tornadoes Friday night: one near Jeffris in Lincoln County, another near Tripoli in Oneida County and a third near Mosinee in Marathon County. The weather service confirmed a fourth tornado Saturday morning near New London in the Fox Valley.
