The Village of Suring once again has power after 30 hours without heat or electricity.

Some homes are still without power, but those are generally on the far outskirts of town. WPS restored power to most cities and towns, and is now headed to remote areas.

“I was so happy to get back and the house was nice and warm,” said 90-year-old Mildred Genskow. “I was almost frozen and then one of my neighbors came and was like, you’re coming to my house,” she said.

For those few still in the cold, the Red Cross set up a shelter at the Woodland Village Nursing Home.

As of 8:00 p.m. no visitors had come to stay at the shelter. A shelter is also available at the Wabeno Fire Department.
