MILWAUKEE — Severe weather uprooted trees, blew down power lines and dropped golf ball-sized hail in parts of Wisconsin.

In northeastern Wisconsin, the storm knocked out power to about 20,000 Wisconsin Public Service customers, many on the Door County peninsula, a popular vacation spot.

The utility expects to have electricity restored to all customers by mid-afternoon Monday.

Trees and branches blocked some roads and caught vacationers off guard in Door County. Tyler Lees, of Libertyville, Illinois, tells WBAY-TV ( ) the storm seemed to have come out of nowhere and had people scrambling to get inside.

The National Weather Service says the thunderstorms Sunday moved from the north to the south, mainly in eastern Wisconsin and carried damaging winds and large hail.
